First Lady Dr. Jill Biden will be joined by newly-confirmed Education Secretary Miguel Cardona on her visit to Meriden on Wednesday.
The two will visit Benjamin Franklin Elementary School, according to a release from the Office of the First Lady.
Cardona grew up in Meriden and after college, returned to the city to begin his career in education. He was a fourth-grade teacher before becoming the state's youngest-ever principal.
He later became Connecticut's education commissioner and was nominated by then-President-elect Joe Biden to be U.S. Secretary of Education.
Dr. Biden and Dr. Cardona will also visit a school in Pennsylvania on Wednesday.
