Congratulations to Dr. Miguel Cardona on his nomination for U.S. Secretary of Education. Dr. Cardona attended the MxCC@Platt ribbon-cutting ceremony in 2018. At the time, he was the assistant superintendent for Meriden schools and made comments about the MxCC@Platt partnership. “What a great opportunity for our kids,” he said. “My first class was at Middlesex, and I remember the confidence I walked out of the class with. I know a lot of our students will benefit from the program.”
