This month's local TV report by Senator Argall focuses on the 'Senator for a Day' program which he hosted at Penn State University's Schuylkill campus in May. The program included 11 local area high schools from the 29th Senatorial District.
"This program has been a huge success because the students are so engaged," said Argall, who hosts the annual seminar each spring. "Each year, I am more and more impressed with how our current students and future leaders can articulate and debate issues we face in Pennsylvania today. This program highlights a great hands-on experience that furthers local students' understanding of how state government works, and doesn't work."
Participating schools included Blue Mountain, Lehighton Area, Mahanoy Area, Marian Catholic, Minersville, Nativity BVM, Panther Valley, Pottsville, Schuylkill Haven, Tamaqua and Tri-Valley.
