WASHINGTON –Fifth graders from Jonesboro’s Visual and Performing Arts Magnet School visited U.S. Senator John Boozman’s Washington office from their classroom with the click of a mouse.
The fifth graders talked with Boozman via Skype, an online video chat service. Students asked a wide range of questions from policies crafted by Congress to the senator’s time as a Razorback football player.
“These students asked great questions. I hope this inspires these young Arkansans to a life of public service and to give back to the community. I appreciate the opportunity to connect with these students and share with them about my work in Washington,” Boozman said.
"My students having the opportunity to speak with Senator Boozman was invaluable. In one short conversation, they learned so much about government, laws, and having a career in politics. Thank you Senator Boozman for taking the time to impact the future and encouraging my students to make a difference, starting in their own community," Fifth grade teacher Lanie Rollings said.
