Student Day at the Legislature

Mr. Raber and Mrs. Brown took a group of 13 Senior students for "Student Day at the Legislature." Students had the opportunity to listen to Governor Eric Holcomb, Secretary of State Connie Lawson, along with other government officials. Students participated in a mock bill debate with other high school students, led by State Senator Jeff Raatz. After lunch, students were taken on a tour of the Statehouse. They were met by Judge John Baker in the Indiana Supreme Courtroom, the oldest State Supreme Courtroom in the United States. Students were also able to see how laws are made on the state level by watching Indiana State Representatives and Senators debate on bills in their respective chambers.
