ANNAPOLIS, Md. (June 3, 2011) – Lieutenant Governor Anthony G. Brown will give the 2011 Commencement Address at two Maryland high schools over the coming days. TOMORROW, he will speak at the Northwestern Senior High School commencement ceremony at New Psalmist Baptist Church, in Baltimore City. On MONDAY, he will address graduates of Laurel High School at the Comcast Center in Prince George’s County. The Lt. Governor will encourage students to continue pursuing educational opportunities that will help prepare them for success in the 21st Century economy.
Lt. Governor Brown leads the O’Malley-Brown Administration’s efforts to increase higher education opportunities. The administration has taken steps to make a higher education more accessible and affordable for all Marylanders, including making record investments in our community colleges and freezing tuition four years in a row at our four-year public colleges and universities. Last year the Lt. Governor launched the Skills2Compete initiative, which promotes programs and activities that lead to increasing the skill level of Marylanders though the attainment of a post-secondary credential, apprenticeship program or degree.
