Sen. Vogel & Del. Collins visit WPSVSBA Take Your Legislator to School Month

In an effort to build a closer relationship between public education and lawmakers serving in the Virginia General Assembly, Winchester Public Schools invited Senator Jill Vogel and Delegate Chris Collins to visit and interact with a focus group on December 3, 2019. Held at Daniel Morgan Intermediate School, the visit gave both representatives an opportunity to observe what is going on at WPS and provided students the opportunity to interact with an elected official and learn about the important roles and responsibilities of Virginia General Assembly members.

Winchester Public Schools would like to thank Senator Vogel and Delegate Collins for taking time to come visit our students and creating teachable moments and strengthen the bond between public education and the Virginia General Assembly.
