The U.S. History and Government classes at Holston High School recently had the opportunity to hear from and speak with Congressman Morgan Griffith. Griffith, who represents Virginia’s 9th District in the U.S. House of Representatives, came to HHS on September 21st and spoke with the students for over an hour. The congressman explained the different components of his job, from constituent services to voting on appropriation bills. Students asked questions related to politics as well as governing. Some students asked questions about the upcoming presidential election. Congressman Griffith explained the nominating process to them.
Both the students and Congressman Griffith enjoyed the exchange. Teachers Jeff Blevins, Julie Matlock, and Scott Hill salute the congressman for making the effort to reach out to students in the rural parts of his district.
