The group of about a dozen students got the chance to ask Senator Lesser questions about the work legislators are doing in support of women and education.
Many of the students said it their first trip to the State House, and since they learned so much, they said they will encourage other students to take the trip.
“What we’re learning here and while we’re taking pictures here we’re gonna put it in our newsletter so other people would want to visit on their own time or probably next semester,” Bay Path student Tyoshia Owens-Walker said.
The group of students was issued a proclamation by Senator Lesser for the work they’re doing to educate and inspire women to become more politically active.
The students also visited the Senate Chamber during Thursday’s session where they were recognized by Senator Lesser and applauded by the entire legislative body.
