Representative for a Day


On November 30 a group of 45 students from Neshaminy High School and William Tennent High School participated in a unique Representative for a Day event at NHS hosted by Pennsylvania Representative Frank Farry. The students first heard from Rep. Farry and former Lieutenant Governor Jim Cawley about the legislative process, then broke into 'committees' to draft mock legislation which they debated over and ultimately voted on. A number of legislative aides joined the project to guide the students through the process.
