U.S. Senator Al Franken made a special visit to Inver Hills Community College on Tuesday, Jan. 15, 2013, to meet with student veterans, and students and faculty in our Emergency Medical Services and Network Technology and Security programs.
The senator spent time talking one-on-one with six of the more than 800 military veterans on campus, asking about how their experiences in the service have translated into college credits, and how the nation’s educational system could better serve them.
The senator also explored two of the college’s standout programs — EMS and Network Technology and Security —¬†learning about the college’s innovative efforts to train Community Paramedics through a new Community Paramedic program, and to provide exceptional cybersecurity training, as recognized by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the National Security Agency.
