BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - The first lady will make a stop in Vermont on Wednesday.

Jill Biden and U.S. Education Secretary Miguel Cardona will be in the Burlington area Wednesday afternoon.

They’re scheduled to visit Beta Technologies at the Burlington International Airport to highlight the work the electric plane-maker is doing to bring jobs in the clean energy sector and to highlight investments in high school career and technical education programs. They’ll be joining Governor Phil Scott.

Cardona says it’s all about the Biden administration’s efforts to invest in America. “The job opportunities that are coming -- career opportunities I should say. and visiting tomorrow -- it’s going to be great because it’s gonna give us a chance to see what it’s going to look like on the ground, the opportunities that exist for Americans who are looking for an opportunity,” he said.
