One of this week’s highlights was the visit of Consul General Gill to Trenton and its surroundings in New Jersey.
CG Gill had the chance to meet several dedicated personalities. Amongst them was Keith Cothrun, Executive Director of the American Association of Teacher of Germany (AATG). Together they discussed the important topic of bilateral cooperation between the United States and Germany, especially within the educational system, in which German language teachers play a significant role.
Additionally, CG Gill met with Jane Wong, Dean of the School of Humanities and Social Sciences at The College of New Jersey (TCNJ). The lunchtime discussion featured an eager group of students who analyzed our political systems and the current status quo.
CG Gill’s final appointment of the day was with Senator Steve Sweeney, President of the New Jersey Senate. Once again, this meeting offered insights into the state politics of our area of jurisdiction. We are always very happy to strengthen German-American cooperation on a local level.
It was a great day to learn more about New Jersey and its People.
