EBENSBURG, March 2 – State Rep. Frank Burns, D-Cambria, will host a Seniors for Safe Driving at the Community Arts Center of Cambria County on Friday, March 31. “Seniors have been very enthusiastic and receptive toward this class, so I continue to host it,” Burns said. “My office will take any opportunity to help our seniors save money and ensure their safety behind the wheel.” The PennDOT-approved course allows mature drivers 55 or older to refresh existing driving techniques and cultivate a positive attitude toward the road. There will be no on-the-road driving or in-class testing; this will only be classroom instruction. Burns also said the course will help older drivers improve their awareness. Participating seniors will receive a 5% discount on their automobile insurance. The state-mandated discount is one of the benefits of the $16 class, which is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday, March 31, at the Community Arts Center of Cambria County, 1217 Menoher Blvd. in Johnstown. Interested participants must RSVP by Friday, March 24 by calling Burns’ district office at (814) 472-8021 and providing their driver’s license number. Read more

JOHNSTOWN, Jan. 11 – The Learning Lamp has been selected to receive a $224,790 state grant to help fund a pre-apprenticeship program for high school students to help them jumpstart careers in early childhood education, state Rep. Frank Burns, D-Cambria, announced today. “Schools-to-work programs like this help high school students transition into in-demand careers and get a jump on entering the local workforce,” Burns said. “This is an investment not just in those students and their futures, but in our community as well. In this case especially, since these students will in turn go on to educate the next generation.” The Learning Lamp was one of 11 programs that was selected to receive a state grant which was awarded by the Pennsylvania Department of Labor & Industry’s Schools-to-Work grant program. The Learning Lamp's Early Childhood Education Registered Pre-Apprenticeship Program provides high school students with the opportunity to graduate with a Child Development Associate credential. With pre-apprenticeship serving as a bridge, students can seamlessly transition to ECE Registered Apprenticeship and scholarship-funded advanced degree pathways to earn associate and bachelor's degrees in early childhood and K-4 education at no cost. Additional details about the Schools-to-Work Program can be found on L&I’s website. Read more
