Walorski visits Riley High School’s magnet program students


More and more South Bend students are getting a hands on learning experience partaking in the district’s STEM magnet program.

Students in the magnet program can earn college credit and get hands on experience in science, engineering, math and technology.

On Wednesday, Congresswoman Jackie Walorski and Superintendent Dr. Kenneth Spells  took a tour of the school and visited several of the classes.

Walorski, a graduate of Riley High School, met with students, answered their questions, and learned more about the program.

“To see the tools that these kids have today, everyone is in front of a computer, everyone in front of something that has to do with electronics, problem solving, it’s certainly completely suited for the future that we’re facing. We’re the largest manufacturing district in the country and to keep expanding our opportunities we need students like this walking right out into the job force and being so knowledgeable. I just told them take advantage of every minute, soak it in and use it,” said Walorski.
