On Friday, Oct. 28, Assembly member Connie Conway visited Granite Hills to tour the Pathway Programs on campus.
In the morning, Law, Justice, and Education student ambassadors escorted the guests to the library. Some of the guests included local community leaders, school officials, and local residents. Jeff Bottoms presented a presentation to Conway and her delegation.
“It made me take pride in my school because an Assembly woman was actually taking notice in the hard work we do here do here at Granite Hills,” said Ernestina Quintero, senior at Granite.
After the presentation, Bottoms escorted the delegation into Room 205 to look at the Digital Design and Communication Pathway’s project. She spent the next fifteen minutes touring the DDC programs including the GTV Studios.
DDC teacher, Dean Morris said, “It was really great for the students to display what they learned. They did most of the presentation and did really well.”
After her tour of the DDC program, Conway was escorted to the Mini Gym by the LJE student ambassadors. There she spent an hour and a half doing activities involving different projects from the LJE students. Afterwards, she spent fifteen minutes to talk to the students about the pathway program and to take time to take pictures with the students.
“It’s really a great honor for our school that she would take the time out and come to this ‘east-side school,’” said Jody Georgianna, another senior at Granite, “but she also seemed really excited.”
