Superintendent’s Student Advisors Visit NM Legislature

— filed under:

High school students weigh in on proposed legislation that would take driver's licenses away from truant students.

February 11, 2014

The Superintendent’s Student Advisory Council visited the New Mexico Legislature last week. The students were able to visit the House and Senate Education Committees and, coincidentally, heard a bill that would take driver’s licenses away from truant students.

“I was so proud that our students were able to see how the process of making legislation works,” said APS Superintendent Winston Brooks. “I received dozens of compliments about how articulate the students were when weighing in on the driver’s license bill, offering a new perspectives of how the bill would impact them and their fellow students.”

The bill that the students listened to was tabled in House Education but was passed in the Senate Education. The students also got to visit with Lt. Gov. John Sanchez, who has met with this group of students nicknamed SuperSAC for the fourth straight year.

“We appreciate the lieutenant governor meeting with the students,” added Brooks.  “He goes above and beyond to talk to the students about the legislative process and gives them advice about their future and being productive citizens for the state of New Mexico.”

SuperSAC also was honored by the New Mexico House of Representatives.
