Students Visit Capital Building in Des Moines

Students from Central and Mid City High had the opportunity to visit our State Capital in Des Moines! Mid City High students Asia Echols and Michelle McCrady toured the Capital building, the Dome, and met State representatives. Students also watched legislators from the Observation Gallery. Central High students from US Government, AP US Government and Politics classes had the opportunity to visit with legislators and check out the Executive Branch offices.  This trip was sponsored by the Davenport School Board’s Legislative Advocacy Committee. After the initial Capitol tour, several AP Government students, including Thompson Teasdale, Joseph Shie, Luke Eure, Nick deBlois, and Graham Atkinson, stopped by the Iowa Secretary of State’s office during a break. Secretary Paul Pate allowed the students, chaperoned by teachers Dan Flaherty and Vince Jurgena, to visit his office’s 3 story vault among other sights, and he even sent out a Tweet mentioning the visit!
