High school students attend fair for their future in Aspen
Bennet, D-Colo., is a member of the U.S. Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions. He opened the event discussing the importance of giving children the opportunity to "go farther" than the generations before them. Bennet is also the former superintendent for Denver Public Schools.
College fair organizers signed on with Bennet's goals to create more opportunity for the next generation through a commitment to education.
"It's one thing to talk about how important it is to go to college," Bennet said, "but it is critical to get kids into a place where they are face-to-face with people who are representing the universities so they can understand what it looks like."
