On Monday and Tuesday of this week,  Wa-Hi Students Kyle Carver and Ruben Balderas traveled to our State Capital in Olympia Washington. Ruben and Kyle spent their time talking to State legislators about the importance of afterschool programs in Walla Walla. They shared how After School programs during their middle school years and now in high school have influenced in their own lives for the better. Ruben also served as a panelist on the Expanded Learning Opportunities Quality Standards Initiative which presented to the House Committee on Education. These two students will travel to Washington, D.C. later this year to educate our federal congressional members about afterschool programming in our district and state.
