Senator Stabenow Talks Civics At Bloomfield Hills Middle Schoolwphungerford
U.S. Sen. Debbie Stabenow encouraged students in Bloomfield Hills Monday to learn about their communities and get involved in causes they believe in if they want to make positive changes.
Recounting how she started her political career helping fight the closure of a home for seniors while attending Michigan State University, the long-time Democrat senator said learning what issues they care about is the place to start.
“Go out and learn and listen to things about what you’re interested in doing and put together your ideas,” she told fifth graders at Bloomfield Hills Middle School during a special assembly. “Think about what you’d like to change in the community.”
Principal Randy English read off several questions prepared beforehand by students, which Stabenow answered candidly for about 45 minutes.
Stabenow also spoke to a capacity-filled room at the Doyle Center earlier Monday with the Women Officials Network.
