Thompson Tells Showcase Gathering that Tech Education Will Close Skills Gap

Speaking to an audience of defense-business leaders, educators, and elected officials, United States Representative Glenn “G.T.” Thompson called for ending the outdated stigma associated with career and technical education. He recalled days when those classes were often looked at as fallback plans for students who were not college material or even problem children.

“That's not today,” said Thompson, a Republican from the 15th congressional district, when delivering the keynote address during Showcase for Commerce's John P. Murtha breakfast inside the Frank J. Pasquerilla Conference Center in downtown Johnstown. 

Showcase for Commerce is an annual defense industry expo in its 29th year in Johnstown. Please take a moment to read the complete article on The Tribune-Democrat website.
