As the Rochester community awaits the arrival of Vice President Joe Biden, many are wondering what he will discuss during his speech at Monroe Community College's Applied Technologies Center.

News10NBC has learned the Vice President will touch on the issues of education and workplace development, as well as speak about job training.  Vice President Biden will be joined by his wife, Dr. Jill Biden, a community college English professor at a community college in Virginia and strong supporter of continuing education.

News10NBC has also learned Mayor Lovely Warren invited the Vice President to tour the Henrietta campus to see how schools like MCC are preparing people to join the workforce. The visit comes just hours after President Obama's State of the Union address called for major changes in job training programs and education reform.

We will have complete coverage throughout the day of the Vice President's visit on www.whec.com and on News10NBC at 5 and 6.
