President Joe Biden is scheduled to visit north Phoenix and the TSMC site next week, the White House announced.
Biden will attend a scheduled TSMC event Dec. 6 where attendees will get a firsthand look at construction progress and learn about updates on the project.
TSMC and technology industry executives and other dignitaries connected to TSMC Arizona are expected to attend.
"The president will visit TSMC and discuss how his economic plan is leading to a manufacturing boom, rebuilding supply chains, and creating good-paying jobs in Arizona and across the country," the White House statement said.
The White House made the announcement on Nov. 30.
Construction on the first phase of the first TSMC building is ongoing.
The first building is expected to be complete next summer at the commerce park called Sonoran Oasis Science and Technology Park near Interstate 17 and Loop 303 in far northern Phoenix.
The site is part of a 3,500-acre technology park just up the road for Phoenix Deer Valley Airport, itself a hub for manufacturing that could see big gains as a result of the new plant.
Journalism has fascinated Brent Ruffner since junior high school.
Since 2001, his stories have been published in newspapers from the Albuquerque to the Arizona and he has always had a knack for making sure his facts are right and his words are to the point.
Growing up, Brent watched as sports reporters covered his beloved Phoenix Suns, a team he followed since Charles Barkley first arrived in Phoenix via trade in 1992. Sports reporting was a dream back then.
But after gaining some writing experience, Brent found a love for news instead of covering different types of sports. In 2008, he moved to New Mexico and covered crime, schools and city beats all while holding elected officials accountable.
He covered stories that ranged from a DEA drug bust gone bad to an award-winning story on school lunches.
In Arizona, Brent was a freelance writer who covered everything from the importance of citrus in the state to Esteban owning a store in downtown Prescott.
Brent is a 2007 graduate of the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Arizona State University.
