"Legislative Day in Nashville was very informative. As a leadership group, we were able to meet and have lunch with Secretary of State Tre Hargett, State Senator John Stevens, State Representatives Bill Sanderson and Andy Holt. They were very gracious in their hospitality and answered all our questions. The day was filled with a tour of the capital and sitting in on hearings pertaining to certain bills. All in all it was a great day and a different perspective of our leaders and the hard work they put in every day." -David Keeling, Class Member 2014-2015
