Legislative Day unforgettable

A sophomore at Swallows Charter Academy shadowed Pueblo’s State Senator, George Rivera, last month as part of the 15th annual Legislative Day at the Colorado State Capitol.

Legislative Day 2014 at the Capitol: Celebrating Excellence, sponsored by the Colorado Association for Gifted and Talented, gives participating students a chance to shadow a legislator or legislative aide for a day as the Colorado General Assembly pursues its governmental process.

Walker Perry from Swallows Charter Academy learned about the opportunity from his social studies teacher, Tori Carter, and applied to participate.

Approximately 250 eighth to 12th graders from throughout Colorado took part in the activities for Legislative Day.

“By attending, I had the privilege of shadowing a state legislator for the day to learn the inner workings of how the Capitol runs and to observe the daily tasks, duties and activities of the state legislators,” Perry said.
