ALBANY – State Assemblyman Steve Hawley (R,C,I-Batavia) poses with 70 students from Kendall on Tuesday at the Million-Dollar Staircase in Albany, where the steps are made from Medina sandstone. The students, members of the Class of 2024, wore shirts representing the school colors.
Hawley said he was happy to welcome the middle schoolers to the State Capitol. Hawley led the students on a tour of the building an gave them a formal introduction on the Assembly floor.
“I was proud to welcome these inquisitive and enthusiastic students from my district to Albany and pleased to give them a behind-the-scenes look at policymaking in our state,” Hawley said. “The Eagles certainly made their presence known, proudly sporting their school’s colors and logo, and it my pleasure to join my colleagues in introducing them during our Assembly proceedings on Tuesday. I enjoy giving young students the opportunity to ask questions and witness the inter-workings of politics firsthand. In doing so, we create more civic-minded young people and a stronger democracy.”
