Secretary Mattis toured the school and visited a few sixth-, seventh- and eighth-grade classrooms, speaking briefly about his work as the head of the U.S. Department of Defense and encouraged students to be dedicated to doing well in school so they could be successful later in life.

“Without an education, you don’t know where you’re starting, and if you don’t know where you’re starting, you don’t know where to go,” he said.
