Dr. Patricia Stanley, deputy assistant secretary in the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Vocational and Adult Education, will be the keynote speaker at the 2008 HVACR & Plumbing Instructor Workshop on March 6.

The workshop is set for March 5-7 at the National Conference Center in Lansdowne, Va. Gerry Kennedy, chair of the 2008 Instructor Workshop Steering Committee, said having Stanley kick off the workshop is “indicative of the commitment we have to providing our attendees access to the highest caliber of industry professional.”

“Pat Stanley is a leader in the field of vocational and adult education and her expertise and professional experiences are tailor-made for our audience,” said Kennedy. “Dr. Stanley has set a standard of excellence in her career and we look forward to hearing her commentary on the state of American adult education and the future challenges.”

Sworn in as the deputy assistant secretary in the Office of Vocational and Adult Education in mid-December 2006, Stanley was selected for her knowledge of community colleges and experience with workforce and adult education. Her primary responsibilities are for all initiatives and policies affecting community colleges and post-secondary education.
