Governor John Hickenlooper Visits Prairie Heights Middle School


Governor John Hickenlooper visited Prairie Heights Middle School this morning as part of his farewell tour through the state as he prepares to leave office in January. He got to hear first hand about the schools success in moving from one of the lowest rated to one of the highest. Gov. Hickenlooper talked about how students and their learning needs have changed over the years. He said it is more important than ever that students have opportunities for apprenticeships and internships, something District 6 has been focusing on in recent years. He also said K-12 education needs more resources, including higher wages for teachers.  Students who attended the program got to ask questions and took a photo after with Gov. Hickenlooper.
