Thanks to Governor Nathan Deal, Lt. Governor Cagle, Irene Munn and Roy Neil, the students from UNL’s city-wide Atlanta Leadership Academy and the Pebblebrook High School In-School Academy had an amazing educational and career exposure experience last week. Students learned how state government operates, observed a portion of the Senate session, heard from representatives and lobbyists and participated in a mock legislative session related to high school athletics and religious expression. “It was so great to see them take on the roles of committee members and lobbyists,” said Careshia Moore, UNL’s National Program Director. The students even got to take over the social media for the Lieutenant Governor. Check out their posts below!

Tension is in the air as we think there are a few future Senators and lobbyists in the group! We just wrapped up debate on Senate Bill 309 — a bill centered on freedom of religious expression within high school athletics. What a cool day! – UNL #UshersNewLook #UshersNewLookAtTheCapitol #Leadership #Talent #Education #Career #Service
