Gov. Tom Corbett and First Lady Susan Corbett in Gettysburg July 1.
What to look for on Radio Smart Talk, July 17:
Pennsylvania First Lady Susan Corbett appears on Wednesday's Radio Smart Talk to discuss her role and the causes and campaigns she leads or is involved in.
They include what is perhaps her most significant project -- the Opening Doors initiative that is designed to prevent students from dropping out of the school. Mrs. Corbett, who taught English at Northern Lebanon High School in Lebanon County, hosted an education and dropout prevention forum at the Governor's Residence last year. Several key dropout prevent focuses emerged including identifying at-risk middle school students, keeping at-risk students on track to graduate, and the economic impact of dropping out of the school.
Mrs. Corbett will address what she has called the state's dropout crisis.
Susan Corbett is also Chair of the Pennsylvania Council for the Arts, Pennsylvania's "First Tourist" to showcase the state's sites and attractions, and is involved in historic preservation.
