U.S. Congressman Pete Sessions (R-TX-32) announced that Hannah Hale recently completed successful participation in the 2017 Pete Sessions Leadership and Growth Program (PSLGP).
Congressman Sessions, who represents the Thirty-Second Congressional District, hosts the Leadership and Growth Program in Washington, DC every summer during the months of June and July. Students at the high school level participate and are given the opportunity to get an inside look into how our government works.
“My summer leadership program provides students with the opportunity to expand their horizons and prepares them to consider, challenge and thoughtfully articulate the issues currently facing our nation,” Sessions said. “PSLGP participants see Washington firsthand by observing House Committee hearings, attending program forums with government officials and Washington leaders, and touring various historical sites, memorials, and monuments around the district.”
During her week in Washington, Hannah visited a number of historical sites including educational tours of the National Portrait Gallery, the Library of Congress, and the Supreme Court. In addition, she had the opportunity to participate in a wide range of activities, from visiting the Arlington National Cemetery and the Holocaust Museum to researching and discussing policy issues. She was also able to interact with other leaders in Washington, including Bill Shuster (R-PA-9), Doug Andres (Press Secretary for Speaker Paul Ryan) and Greg Walden (R-OR-2).
“Each year I am delighted to welcome students to our nation’s capital,” concluded Sessions. “Hannah is a young leader who will undoubtedly be one of the future pillars of our communities and I look forward to seeing her grow and achieve her goals.”
