“Dr. Gilmour and I share that vision, and I have enjoyed working with Penn College in Congress to develop policies that bring job creators and the workforce closer together, expand opportunities for career and technical education, promote economic development, and spur job creation.

“I thank Dr. Gilmour for her service, vision, and tireless commitment to Penn College’s important mission. I wish Dr. Gilmour all the best in her future endeavors.”
