During their visit, students had the opportunity to meet with members of the Western Maryland delegation, including Sen. Chris Shank, Del. Andrew Serafini and Del. LeRoy Myers.
“Our trip to Student Advocacy Day was quite exciting. In between our meetings with delegates concerning community college support and higher education, we were witness to numerous demonstrations regarding firearms,” said Rick Howe, vice president of HCC’s Student Government Association. “Seeing so many citizens from both sides of the issue involved in the legislative process was great. I just wish more people had the same passion for education issues.”
