COMMISSIONER GEORGE P. BUSH VISITS MARTIN HIGH SCHOOL AND TOURS WORKFORCE READINESS PROGRAM
ARLINGTON — Yesterday, Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush taught an interactive economics lesson on Texas energy at Martin High School as part of his “Year of Energy” initiative.
As one of the largest financiers of public schools in Texas, the Texas General Land Office (GLO) realizes that the quality of our education systems is paramount to our state’s success.
“High schools across the state are preparing our young leaders in classrooms today for the workforce of tomorrow,” said Commissioner George P. Bush. "Engaging with young Texans who are immersed in workforce readiness programs further exemplifies the profound success these programs have on our students. Martin High School has done an amazing job ensuring our students are prepared with the skills they need upon graduation. Texas' future is in good hands with these bright young minds."
In Mr. Trey Benedict's economic class, Commissioner Bush discussed how our state’s energy is produced, the history of Texas’ oil boom and especially, how students who are interested can prepare for a future in this field. He then toured the school's workforce readiness facility and programs.
