State Education chief visits North Country schools



Before leaving for an engagement at Clinton Community College, King sat down with seventh-graders Katarina Emerich and Miranda White, who interviewed the commissioner for an article they would write for their school’s news-writing club.

King told the Press-Republican that he finds the North Country to be a beautiful place and was happy to be able to visit the area.

“I’ve learned in this job what a big state we have,” he said. “I’ve had the opportunity to travel around a lot of the state, which is nice.”

NCCS Interim Superintendent Gerald Blair said he hoped King took notice of the good work being done by teachers at the school to engage students in their education.

“I think we do a fine, fine job, we have great results, and it’s an honor to have him come to our location,” he said.

Following his visit to NCCS, King was scheduled to attend a presentation on the Clinton County THRIVE Cradle through Career partnership at Clinton Community College, as well as a speaking engagement at the Westside Ballroom in Plattsburgh Thursday evening.

Today, he was stopping in at a number of other locations in the North Country.
