LANSING—State Sen. Phil Pavlov attended the 4-H Capitol Experience Ceremony and Legislative Breakfast on Tuesday to honor several students from the 25th Senate District who participated in the program.
“The 4-H Capitol Experience is an exciting program that educates and energizes young people about state government and public policy,” said Pavlov, R-St. Clair Township. “The students here today from the district are bright and engaging. They are proof that our future is in good hands.”
Capitol Experience is for high school students interested in gaining skills and knowledge to develop their leadership, citizenship and civic engagement skills and apply them in the real world. More than 100 teens from around the state participated in the four-day conference in Lansing to interact with legislators, state agency staff, lobbyists and other resource people to learn how policy is made.
Pavlov welcomed five students from the 25th District: David Fountain, of St. Clair; Riley Good, of Sandusky; Keely Holbrook, of Croswell; Evan Tino, of Sandusky; and Becca Winalis, of New Baltimore.
After breakfast, the students observed the Senate in session and attended committee meetings.
“If your teenage son or daughter is looking for a way to make a difference in civic engagement, have them check out the 4-H Capitol Experience,” said Pavlov. “It is a great way to get involved.”
