HCC students attend Student Advocacy Day

(Release: February 11, 2013) - Several students from Hagerstown Community College spent the day in Annapolis on Wed., Feb. 6 to participate in Student Advocacy Day, organized through the Maryland Association of Community Colleges. During their visit, students had the opportunity to meet with members of the Western Maryland legislative delegation, including Senator Chris Shank, Delegate Andrew Serafini, and Delegate LeRoy Myers.

“Our trip to Student Advocacy Day was quite exciting. In between our meetings with delegates concerning community college support and higher education, we were witness to numerous demonstrations regarding firearms,” said Rick Howe, vice president of HCC’s Student Government Association.  “Seeing so many citizens from both sides of the issue involved in the legislative process was great. I just wish more people had the same passion for education issues.”
