As career colleges take center stage in Washington, D. C., Pinnacle Career Institute in South Kansas City plans to strengthen its solid relationship with U. S. senators and representatives by hosting two separate campus tours later this month. Democratic Rep. Emanuel Cleaver of Missouri will visit the Pinnacle Career Institute in South Kansas City campus on Aug. 16, and Regional Director Corey Dillion will visit the school on behalf of Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill of Missouri on Aug. 17.
Pinnacle Career Institute is one of thousands of career colleges in the United States that provide students with career-specific training. While touring the campus, the officials will be able to observe firsthand the advantages and opportunities the institute offers students. The tours will focus on PCI’s first-of-their-kind alternative energy programs and extensive community involvement, as well as address other pertinent legislative issues including gainful employment, a proposed rule by the Department of Education that ties graduates salaries to educational costs.
Emanuel Cleaver is currently serving his third term representing the 5th District of Missouri in the U. S. House of Representatives and sits on the exclusive Financial Services Committee, Homeland Security Committee, and the Speaker’s Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming. In 1979, Cleaver was elected to the City Council of Kansas City. After three terms, he ran for and was elected to the office of mayor, where he made history as the first African-American to hold the city’s highest office. As mayor, Cleaver worked tirelessly to improve the quality of life for Kansas City residents. He championed programs and initiatives designed to create jobs and stimulate economic development, including infrastructure improvements, city planning and youth outreach. Cleaver’s exemplary leadership earned him a two-term position as President of the National Conference of Black Mayors.
Claire McCaskill became the first woman elected to the U. S. Senate from Missouri in November 2006. She was named as one of the select senators to sit on the Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, formerly known as the Truman Committee. McCaskill currently sits on four Senate committees, including Armed Services, Commerce, HSGAC and Aging. From those committees, she’s championed accountability and transparency, earmark reform, increased independence for Inspector Generals (IG) that act as federal auditors, credit card regulations, security improvements to foreign repair stations that service our domestic aircraft, reforms to the reverse mortgage industry, consumer protections, and full benefits and resources for our brave veterans and wounded active service members.
“PCI is honored to host the congressional representatives of Missouri. We welcome any chance to show legislators firsthand the great work we do in our schools and in our community,” said Monte Schaich,
