Four Hamilton students traveled to Albany, N.Y., on Feb. 12 to take part in Student Advocacy Day. Hosted annually by CICU, this event makes it possible for legislators to hear directly from students on what Opportunity Programs across New York State mean in their lives. The stories are powerful, personal and motivational. Hamilton students who attended were LaShawn Ware ’17, Morolake Thompson ’14, Osvaldo Adames ’15, and Leslie Campos ’15.
The students met with Assemblyman Kenneth Blankenbush, Senator David J. Valesky and Assemblyman Marc W. Butler.
