SCA Student Reps Visit General Assembly in Richmond

Waverly Yowell Elementary School, Wetsel Middle School, and Madison County High School Student Government Representatives visited the General Assembly in Richmond on Monday.  It was an eye opening experience as students watched the session while the General Assembly voted on bills.  Students were treated to a tour from guide Betsy Allan who showed students the old house chamber, rotunda, and chamber room.  Mrs. Allan helped students understand freedoms and the Constitution.  Additionally, students were very interested in the Capital Classroom – the Senate and House Page Programs  – after speaking with several students who are current pages.   Special thanks to Waverly School Counselor Nicole Keys for arranging the visit.
