“I had the great honor of serving in the U.S. Senate with Senator Claiborne Pell.  Claiborne was both a dedicated public servant and a visionary whose work continues to be felt in communities across America.
 
“Thanks to his efforts, the doors to higher education swung open to millions of students who may otherwise never have had the opportunity.  And his work on Adult Basic Education and the creation of OSHA made him the driving force behind a skilled and safe American workforce.
