Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos made her rounds in South Florida. Friday morning, DeVos arrived at Miami-Dade College’s Wolfson campus for a tour. DeVos was taken around their renowned Miami Animation and Gaming International Complex (MAGIC). The college was hoping she could get a good sense of how important they are to the community.
“We represent the cross-section of America and the future today. We’re the largest campus-based institution in the country with more than 160,000 students with an open door to education so for us it’s important for the secretary to visit us to see the work we’re doing,” said MDC Director of Communications Juan Mendieta.
The Secretary toured the MAGIC facilities accompanied by Dr. Eduardo Padron (MDC President) and Mauricio Ferrazza (MAGIC Chairperson). Secretary Devos interacted with MAGIC students and saw first hand an animation created by students at MAGIC, co-produced with Nickelodeon Studios.
