Dear Professor Luokkala:

Congratulations to all responsible for the reinstatement of the Governor's School for the Sciences! This is a classic example of an effective private sector response to public shortcomings - all to the benefit of talented Pennsylvania high school science students, And all in the spirit of the Ben Franklin Partnership which we pioneered in the 1980s and continues to be an important component of Pennsylvania's economic growth and the creation of more future-oriented employment opportunities in our state.

Please share this message with others who contributed to this effort. Well done!

Dick Thornburgh

Governor of Pennsylvania, 1979-87
