Toohil Will be Keynote Speaker at Keystone Job Corps Center
State Rep. Tarah Toohil (R-116) will deliver the keynote address to graduates of the Keystone Jobs Corps Center on Tuesday, Aug. 30, at 2:30 p.m. at the Daniel J. Flood Recreation Complex.
“I am excited for the graduates of Job Corps to whom I will be speaking,” said Toohil. “They have worked really hard to get to this point. This is such an exciting time in their lives, and I am honored to be a part of it.”
The Keystone Job Corps Center will host one of 124 graduation ceremonies nationwide on Aug. 30. The occasion marks the signing of the Economic Opportunity Act by President Lyndon B. Johnson on the same date in 1964, creating Job Corps.
The Daniel J. Flood Recreation Complex is named after Congressman Flood who represented the 11th Congressional District at the time of the signing and was instrumental in bringing Job Corps to northeastern Pennsylvania.
Toohil, in her first term, is seeking to help bring about the restoration of government integrity, accountability and to strengthen the state’s jobs climate. A strong proponent of education, she serves on the House Judiciary, Health, Local Government and Urban Affairs committees. She is also a member of the House Majority Policy Committee Welfare Reform Policy Development Team and was honored by being named the deputy majority whip in her first month in office.
Born and raised in Drums, Toohil graduated from Hazleton Area High School, majored in both political science and sociology with a concentration in law and legal services at Northeastern University and obtained her Juris Doctor degree from Penn State Dickinson School of Law in Carlisle.
