MSHS Students visit the Capitol

LANSING — State Representative Sara Cambensy invited a class from Marquette Senior High School onto the floor of the House of Representatives Thursday afternoon during their visit to the Capitol for a statewide civic competition.

The advanced placement government class, taught by Fred Cole, is competing today in the “We the People: The Citizen and the Constitution” program, developed and directed by the Michigan Center for Civic Education. Cole said the students are divided in groups and have prepared answers to numerous questions about the U.S. Constitution.

Cambensy said that she was proud of the students for going down to Lansing to participate and added, “I have no doubt our hardworking students from the Upper Peninsula will hold their own with every district from around the state.”
