"I am excited and honored to be selected as the Senate Education Committee chair for the 102nd General Assembly," Belt said. "As the chair, I will ensure that our youth are getting the tools and resources they need to succeed.”

The Senate Education Committee is at the forefront of creating legislation for students in grades K-12 in public and private schools.

Belt served four years on the board of Cahokia Unit School District 187, including two years as board president. He created the Difference Makers Professional Organization, which is dedicated to strengthening young men's decision-making capabilities between ages 9 and 18. He also authored an educational children's book, "The Adventures of Nate the Gnat," to teach youth how to be safe, responsible people.

As Senate Education Committee chair, Belt wants to help develop students’ workforce skills from K-12 and create career and higher education paths for students transitioning out of high school.
