U.S. Sen. Patty Murray visited Edmonds Community College July 6. She met with I-BEST students at the college's materials science lab. Senator Murray is working to reinstate a provision in the federal government's Higher Education Act which allows students without GEDs or high school diplomas the "Ability to Benefit" and qualify for financial aid. This provision affects I-BEST students who may be working on GEDs and diplomas while they also take career-training courses at the college.
