ennsylvania Secretary of Education Dr. L. Gerald Zahorchak told more than 200 education students at Saint Vincent College September 3 that they have chosen the greatest mission in the history of the United States. “Our country is blessed to have all of you willing to provide your service, your lives, and your careers to the greatest mission we have in the history of this country,” Dr. Zahorchak said. “That is to help regain our place in this country and in the world.” Dr. Zahorchak came to Saint Vincent at the invitation

of Josh Vigna (pictured at left with Zahorchak), a sophomore student from Johnstown, who wrote him last spring. “I couldn’t wait to get here,” he said. “I thought it would be a great idea to visit Saint Vincent.” “We have education at the forefront of this country as never before,” Dr. Zahorchak continued. “For a good reason it is at the forefront because it’s a changing world with changing dynamics. Other countries are working at this too and other states are at it hard. We want to regain our position of national prominence.”
