Congressman Mike Honda Named Honorary Member of the
Center for Excellence in Education’s Board of Trustees

McLean, Virginia –November 18, 2013 – The Center for Excellence in Education (CEE) is pleased to announce that Representative Mike Honda, representing California’s 17th District, has joined the CEE Board of Trustees as an Honorary Member.  He has served in the U.S. House of Representatives for six terms.  

“The Center is honored and privileged to have Representative Honda, an outstanding Member of Congress, join us in this capacity,” said Joann DiGennaro, CEE President.  “The Center looks forward to having a former science teacher, principal, and now leading legislator help us in making decisions about STEM education.”

Congressman Honda is a member of the powerful House Appropriations Committee, Chair Emeritus of the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus, Co-chair of the Democratic Caucus’ New Media Working Group, and House Democratic Senior Whip.  He serves on two Appropriations Subcommittees: Commerce, Justice and Science as well as Labor, Health and Human Services and Education. Congressman Honda is a member of more than 50 congressional caucuses, including the Biotech caucus, the Career and Technical Education Caucus, and the Green Schools Caucus.

“I look forward to working with the Center for Excellence in Education to further its mission and education goals,” Representative Honda said.  “I recognize that for America to remain competitive in science, technology, engineering and math, we have to invest in the future generation of leaders.  CEE’s programs encourage U.S. students to do just that by learning to excel in STEM.”
