Dunbar High School presentation to the House of Representatives tomorrow
Washington, D.C.- Tomorrow, Principal Carl Burnside of Dunbar High School in Fort Myers will present the successes of the school’s Career & Technical Education (CTE) programs to the House Committee on Education and the Workforce, at the invitation of Congressman Francis Rooney.
Congressman Rooney stated, “I would like to thank Principal Burnside for his service to our community, and welcome him to the Capitol. This is a great opportunity to showcase Dunbar High School’s state of the art technology, engineering, and biomedical academy, which provides students with opportunities to excel in these in demand fields.”
The House Committee on Education and the Workforce is holding an innovation forum and showcase on July 25th to recognize outstanding education programs from across the country. The event will consist of two parts. Part one will be an oral testimony before Committee members followed by a question and answer period. Part two consists of a Congressional Showcase, where Dunbar High will display information about their program, and will have the opportunity to answer questions from Members of Congress, staff, and the public. This is the first time a Southwest Florida school official has had the opportunity to testify before Congress about their programs.
Dunbar High School is one of forty programs from across the United States invited to share their testimony with Members of Congress.
