McDonnell touts higher education accomplishments at Mason

Governor Bob McDonnell (R) visited George Mason University on Aug. 15 to talk about higher education in Virginia and the progress that his office has made in conjunction with state universities, special interest groups and private industries.

“Ultimately we want to get young people graduating, paying off student loans and getting a good job,” McDonnell said. Speakers commended and highlighted the success of McDonnell’s 2009 higher education proposal, which he announced in the same room in Mason Hall four years earlier.
