Here’s a clip from Elaine Chao’s confirmation hearing today. She said that the problems at Kings Point will be the first thing she addresses at MARAD.
Listen to Senator Wicker’s question, as it demonstrates his concern and knowledge about the Academy — and the importance of the Alumni as a resource. He is specifically focused on the sea year
stand down cancellation and the accreditation issues. The money quote comes from Chao, starting at 2:06 in the clip above:
“This is a huge issue. and I can assure you that if confirmed, this will be the first issue I take up at MARAD.”
Thank you Secretary-nominee Chao. And thank you Senator Wicker for the support and the question.
It is not “delusional” to think that a better day is dawning for Kings Point.
