OKLAHOMA CITY – Student officers representing the National Junior Honor Society and Student Council from DeWitt Waller Middle School recently visited the State Capitol. They were joined by several local 8th graders and teachers, spending time with Sen. Roland Pederson and other legislators.
Pederson, R-Burlington, hosted the group as they learned more about state government and the legislative process.
“I enjoy the opportunity to visit with our local school groups while they’re at the Capitol,” said Pederson, R- Burlington. “Witnessing the process of state government helps to gain a better understanding and I hope the students from DeWitt Waller Middle School will take that knowledge with them.”
