LOHUD: LOCAL HIGH SCHOOLERS LEARN FROM AREA POLITICO
Jacob Bayer of Horace Greeley High School (right) and William McDermott of Somers High School (middle) recently shadowed state Sen. Greg Ball (R,C,I-Patterson) (right) in Albany. The League of Women Voters of New York State sponsored the day, which was part of a larger conference, titled Students Inside Albany, a four-day training experience designed to immerse students in how public policy is proposed, enacted and changed in New York state.
Bayer and McDermott attended several meetings with Ball and his district’s constituents. They were also brought into the Senate Chamber during legislative session to take pictures on the floor. (ARTICLE)
