U.S. Sen. Richard Durbin was a guest speaker Friday Feb. 3, at Oak Park and River Forest High School’s science and technology summit. Other elected officials, including state Sen. Don Harmon, were also among the guests and keynote speakers at the third annual event, officially titled the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math Summit (STEM). The event’s goal, according to OPRF officials is to “build partnerships, research and mentoring relationships” with high school and middle school students. Last Friday’s summit welcomed an estimated 200 people.

Dr. James Thomson is a terrific suggestion.

@ JC. That's easy. James Thomson, Class of 1977. @RJW. I am an INDEPENDENT voter. I think both major parties suck. Sorry to ruin your illusion.

Fair enough. Senator Durbin is not your cup of tea. Who would you have recommended OP-RF High officials invite to speak to the students? I assume you could name a number of individuals you'd prefer but I wonder who tops the list?

Leave it to the Oak Park Tea Party (all 2 of you) to find something negative to say about this.

I'm not sure which politician is a bigger windbag, Durbin or Harmon?
