ALBANY – Assemblyman Steve Hawley (R-Batavia) welcomed a group of students from the Humanities Class at Holley High School on Monday. The students were recognized in the Assembly Chamber at the State Capitol.

The purpose of the trip was to educate students on the inner-workings of state government and give them an exclusive peek at how the Legislature functions, especially during Albany’s busy budget season. The Humanities Class is unique in that it relies very little on textbooks and worksheets but rather questioning, student interaction, discussion and teamwork.

“I was proud to meet with such an impressive group of young men and women from a local high school in my district on Monday,” Hawley said. “It is extremely important to encourage future generations to become involved with and passionate about government and remind them that they are the leaders of tomorrow. Much of the work we do on behalf of taxpayers is often lost or never heard about, and I was excited to give an inside look at my day-to-day business and how budget negotiations are progressing here at the state Capitol. I wish these students success in the future.”
