Senator Van de Putte to Visit Highland Hills Elementary

(AUSTIN) -- On Friday, February 23, Senator Leticia Van de Putte (D - San Antonio) will teach the 4th grade students at Highland Hills Elementary about the legislature. The Senator will be on site from 1:15 p.m. to 2:15 p.m.

Van de Putte is participating in the "Legislators in School" educational program, sponsored by the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL). The program is designed to teach young people about the processes, pressures and compromise involved in being a state legislator and to encourage student participation in government. The program serves as a chance for legislators to meet their youngest constituents and help students understand the importance of being engaged in government.

Press is welcome. Highland Hills Elementary is located at 734 Glamis Street.

Senator Leticia Van de Putte is currently serving as the President of the National Conference of State Legislatures. She is the first Hispanic and the first Texan to lead the prestigious organization.
