Walsh, Tester celebrate summer meetings with hundreds of Montana students

Senators praise students’ engagement and interest in government

(U.S. SENATE) – Senators John Walsh and Jon Tester this summer welcomed over 400 students of all ages from schools across Montana to Washington, D.C.

“Meeting with Montana students is one of the highlights of my job, and strengthens my belief that Montana’s future is in strong hands,” Walsh said. “They come to Washington with complex questions, showing how engaged they are in improving their education and the current events in our state and country. I look forward to meeting more students and educators across the state.”

“Meeting with students reminds me how critical it is to get an education in civics,” said Tester, a former teacher. “These kids impressed me with their understanding of tough issues. They’re proof that our schools are doing good work preparing our next generation of leaders.”

The students traveled to Washington, D.C. through various programs, including Close Up, National Youth Leadership Conference, and 4H.
