Vice President Joe Biden stopped in the Triad today to stress the importance of community colleges.

Jeff Tiberii: Inside the gymnasium at Davidson County Community College Vice President Biden spoke to about 500 people in front of a Blue banner reading “An America Built To Last”. The Vice President spoke as part of a tour highlighting President Barack Obama's budget pitch to fund community colleges and local businesses working together. He said completing a two-year program has cumulative benefits.

Joe Biden: Someone with a two-year community college degree will earn on average, $8,000 more than someone with a high school degree.

The Vice President joined his wife Jill Biden and Labor Secretary Hilda Solis (So-Leece) for the final stop of a five-state tour. They have been traveling to community colleges throughout the Midwest and Southeast this week.

Jeff Tiberii covers politics for WUNC. Before that, he served as the station's Greensboro Bureau Chief.
