On October 7, 2011 Senator Chris Coons along with his press secretary and projects director visited the center. The Senator addressed the students on his education and employment plan for the state of Delaware. He also encouraged the students to further their education and to maintain focus in order to achieve success.
A panel of four students were selected, who asked the Senator questions during the question and answer session.
The Senator was officially pinned with the center’s BIONIC pin and was presented a framed induction certificate stating that he is now an official member of the BIONIC team!! The Culinary Arts department baked cookies for the Senator as a parting gift.
