U.S. Rep. John Delaney, of Maryland’s sixth district, recently visited Hagerstown Community College and met with HCC President Guy Altieri to learn more about how HCC is serving the community.
“Hagerstown Community College has been an integral part of Washington County for nearly seven decades and will be just as integral to our future. Preparing our residents for the jobs of the future is essential to growing our economy and helping our workers compete. That’s why I’m going to continue to be an advocate for education and job training in Congress,” said Rep. Delaney. “I thank President Altieri for meeting with me to discuss the important things that are taking place at HCC.”
During his visit, Rep. Delaney was provided with an overview of HCC’s 66-year history, including program and enrollment growth, student success, and long-range plans.
“We are very encouraged that the Congressman is interested in STEM programming and understands the value that it brings to area economic development,” said Altieri. “Having support from Rep. Delaney and other legislators is key to helping us continue to develop and expand critical programs such as cybersecurity, biotechnology, and alternative energy.”
