Statement by U.S. Education Secretary Duncan on Administrative Support Professionals Day

Liz Utrup, (202) 401-1576,

“Today, on Administrative Support Professionals Day, I want to thank Administrative Professionals for their hard work and committed service. Administrative Professionals are the backbone of any office and often, they are an operation's first point of contact with the public. Whether it's through correspondence, paperwork, organizational efforts or research, their day-to-day work is the foundation of our accomplishments throughout the year. Thank you to all Administrative Professionals across the country, and a special thank you to those of you working at the U.S. Department of Education and in schools across the country for your support and dedication to education.”
