Sen. Pederson hosts DeWitt Waller Middle School student leaders

OKLAHOMA CITY – Student leaders and advisors representing the National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) and Student Council (STUCO) from DeWitt Waller Middle School recently visited the State Capitol.  Twenty three students from the NJHS Leadership class and five STUCO officers spent the day with Sen. Roland Pederson and other legislators to learn more about state government and the legislative process.

“I always look forward to the chance to visit with our local school groups while they’re at the Capitol,” said Pederson, R- Burlington.  “Having an up close and personal view of state government provides a unique perspective and understanding.  I hope the students from DeWitt Waller Middle School will take that knowledge with them.”
