State Sen. Chapin Rose (R-Mahomet) hosted Mahomet High School students and dozens of other students from other high school students from across the 51st Senate District April 2 at the Statehouse for his Youth Advisory Council.
Rose’s bi-annual Youth Advisory Council gives students a unique, hands-on, and up-close experience in state government. Rose spoke about his experience in the legislature, discussed how bills become law, and what it’s like to work in the political arena. Students also heard from other speakers in public policy and toured the Capitol.
The students, who were selected by their teachers and principals to participate, also worked in small groups to propose mock legislation, and then discussed and debated their proposals with the entire group.
Tim Glumac and Lindsey Hodges represented Mahomet-Seymour High School.
