Ledyard High School Civics in Action

Posted on December 20, 2023

On Thursday, I had the pleasure for the second year in a row now to join the Civics in Action event at Ledyard High School. I met with several groups of tenth grade students and multiple topics came up that were important to the students.

Topics ranged from environmental issues such as climate change and waste reduction, lowering the cost of health insurance and greater access to healthcare, to gun issues such as castle doctrine and combatting gun violence, and how to help those in our community that are homeless. Some of the stories shared were personal to the students whether it was from past experience or of importance to them.

I was very happy to listen to their concerns and was impressed with the way they delivered their thoughts to me. I tried to advise them with the next step in their missions.

A special thanks to Seth Galante and the staff of Ledyard High School for this wonderful and informative event. I look forward to this event again next year!
