(Washington, D.C., June 13, 2012) On Wednesday, June 13th, one hundred seventy students and teachers from American Samoa, Guam, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, the U.S. Virgin Islands, the Marshall Islands, Palau and the Federated States of Micronesia paid a visit of more than two hours with the Assistant Secretary for Insular Areas, Tony Babauta.  The students and teachers were visiting Washington, D.C., under the auspices of the Close-Up Foundation, part of whose federal funding derives from the Office of Insular Affairs (OIA).  The Assistant Secretary delivered remarks and answered students’ questions about his prior positions working for the Guam Legislature and on Capitol Hill and now as the highest-ranking Pacific Islander in the Obama Administration.
