Otselic Valley seniors take part in Lobby Day

ALBANY – Members of the Otselic Valley Central School District’s Class of 2012 visited with members of the state legislature Tuesday as part of Lobby Day, held annually at the state capital.

The goal, said Participation in Government educator Jenny Osowski, is simple: encourage students to become more active as citizens and leaders. On Lobby Day, school districts and BOCES institutions across the state make their way to Albany to discuss budget issues with state representatives. Students, added OVCSD Superintendent Rich Hughes, had an opportunity to visit with Assemblyman William Magee, Senator Thomas Libous and a staff member from Senator James Seward’s office.

“Over the past few months, our seniors have been learning about advocacy and the state government under the guidance of Mrs. Osowski,” said Hughes. “The trip was the culmination of their hard work to connect with and inform our legislators about topics that are important to them.”

The students also had a chance to tour the Capitol Building and explore the Assembly Chamber prior to meeting with lawmakers, he added.
