Tester hosts online chat with Anaconda government students

Students from Anaconda High School ask Senator thoughtful questions

(U.S. SENATE) – Senator Jon Tester today spoke with students from a government studies class at Anaconda High School about current affairs and government-related issues in an online chat.

Via video from his Washington D.C. office, Tester responded to students’ questions about making education more affordable, tackling human trafficking in the Bakken, and the Senator’s greatest challenges and contributions since taking office.

“Anaconda’s students asked tough, impressive questions,” said Tester, a former teacher. “They showed great critical thinking and a love for learning that makes me excited about the future of our state. After answering their questions about what motivated my career in politics, I hope they continue to take an interest in improving our society and follow their passion for public service.”

About 20 students from Anaconda’s Honors Government Class participated on the video call.

Anaconda High School is a National Blue Ribbon School and has been nominated for the University of Kansas SIM Impact Award for the second year in a row.
