PartnerLogo Dist120WAUKEGAN – State Senator Adriane Johnson is partnering with the Mundelein High School Adult Education department to recognize the success of the English Language Acquisition pilot program and celebrate the adult students taking an active role in furthering their education.

“Individuals who prioritize the time to learn English while living, working and raising a family in America have better opportunities for job training and therefore, an improved quality of life,” said Johnson (D-Buffalo Grove). “The Mundelein High School Adult Education department is a blessing in our community, and this literacy program will continue to make a significant difference to immigrant families who call our area home.”

At the ceremony, adult students who have completed the first phase of English Language Acquisition will receive a monetary reward provided by Ruprecht Company. As a pilot program for Mundelein High School, officials hope to bring awareness to the effectiveness and sustainability of the program.

“To recognize these students’ accomplishments, we’re inviting members of the community and media to join in the celebration, hear their stories and learn the importance of this program,” Johnson said.

In collaboration with College of Lake County and the Job Center in Waukegan, the Mundelein High School Adult Education program offers students an opportunity to learn English proficiency to help them join the workforce or move to post-secondary education. The program serves 500 non-native English speakers yearly at 11 locations throughout Lake County with in-person and virtual classes. More information on the program is available on the Lake County Careers website.

021022CT00049WAUKEGAN – After reviewing reports from the mass shooting at the Highland Park Fourth of July Parade on Monday morning, State Senator Adriane Johnson (D-Buffalo Grove) grieves for the lives lost, feels remorse for the families affected and renews her calls to explore more comprehensive gun safety policies. She released the following statement:

“The Fourth of July commemorates one of the most significant achievements in our nation’s history but will now be remembered with despair, trauma and bloodshed.

“The local police personnel and first responders who ran into the gunfire undoubtedly saved innocent families attending the parade. Their heroic actions are the one bright spot in this unforeseeable tragedy. From the bottom of my heart—thank you for your diligent service.

“Mass shootings, gun violence and domestic terrorism are major threats to the fabric of our nation. And although I wasn’t in Highland Park, as a senator representing a portion of Lake County, I take the damage caused by this attack personally.

“By all accounts, targeting children, families and other parade-goers at the celebration of our country’s independence is intolerable, reprehensible and unfortunately an event the community will never forget.

“To uplift Highland Park, the lives lost and the numerous lives forever changed, we must take a serious look at what we are doing to prevent carnage, reduce violence and improve safety through comprehensive gun control policies.”
