From district 6 in Delaware, Republican Ernesto Lopez is the ultimate story of the American dream.  Born in Puerto Rico, Lopez immigrated to America to as a child.  He earned his PhD in education leadership at UoD.  In 2012, he ran for state senator against democrat Liane Sorensen and won.  He still is a part of Delaware’s senate today.  Recently, he has visited Cape, which received the National Blue Ribbon Award in 2014.

Senator Lopez walked around the school, visiting the Spanish classes, since Spanish is his first language, the cooking class with Mrs. Cornell, a few other assorted classes.  He walked around the library, and shook hands with Mrs. McKoen, “ He shook hands and said hi. I saw him at legislative hall so it was good to see him again.”

His time in classes were brief so he could visit as many as he could.  He was given the title “Principal of the Day”, as he walked and visited classes.  “He walked in and looked around while my Spanish 3 was doing a project. He said adiós and left,” Dr. Becker said.

The Viking Ventures attempted to reach out to Senator Lopez through email.  As of now no comment has been given. Senator Lopez  is welcome back any time and are grateful for taking his time to visit here.
