Prepared Remarks by Secretary DeVos at Butler Tech's Manufacturing Recognition & Signing Day

Thank you, Jon Graft, for that kind introduction and for your hospitality. I enjoyed visiting with you in Washington and continue to be impressed with the ways Butler Tech is rethinking educationamong them the new "Fifth Day Experience."

And students, I'm so pleased to join you for "Signing Day!" What an exciting and fitting way to recognize what you've accomplished. What you're doing here today is as important and notable as any other signing day.

You've made your families and all of us proud. And your achievements go far beyond a fancy diploma.
