The Baltimore Sun
Jill Biden, educator and wife of Vice President Joe Biden, visited Anne Arundel Community College on Wednesday to offer support for the institutions she calls "one of America's best-kept secrets" and announce the first-ever White House Summit on Community Colleges, slated for Oct. 5.
"The president has asked us to make America aware of how great community colleges are," said Biden, a full-time English teacher in the Northern Virginia Community College system. She alluded to President Barack Obama's request that she chair the summit to draw attention to community colleges' role in developing the nation's work force.
Wednesday at AACC, she took part in a croissant-baking class at the school's Hotel, Culinary Arts and Tourism Institute alongside Martha Kanter, undersecretary of the U.S. Department of Education. The college gave Biden an AACC chef's coat with her name sewn in.
