Second Lady Dr. Jill Biden will visit Escambia High School in Pensacola Friday morning to announce expanded support for allowing children of servicemembers and veterans access to the National Math and Science Initiative (NMSI) College Readiness Program for Military Families.
Dr. Biden will be joined by Jason Silva, host of National Geographic Channel’s Brain Games, from 10 to 11 a.m. Friday morning.
As part of her Joining Forces initiative, more military-connected schools will be able to provide their students with access to rigorous AP courses and support, and consistent, high-quality educational opportunities, ensuring their competitiveness for college and beyond.
Through the initiative, First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Biden have issued a national challenge to all Americans to take action and find ways to support and engage our military families in their own communities. According to the White House, Joining Forces aims to educate, challenge, and spark action from all sectors of our society – citizens, communities, businesses, non-profits, faith-based institutions, philanthropic organizations, and government – to ensure that service members, veterans, and their families have the tools they need to succeed throughout their lives.
