UNL Exposes Atlanta Youth to Careers in Government with Day at the State Capitol!

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.
