State Representative Patti Minter visits Bowling Green Independent School District
BOWLING GREEN Ky.- State representative Patti Minter paid a visit to a local school district, part of a program called ‘Principal for a Day’.
This program is designed to give legislators and elected officials a first-hand look at what’s going on in Kentucky schools to build a stronger partnership. Representative Minter made it her goal to visit as many schools as possible.
Her day began at Bowling Green High School, where she visited with multilingual classes. She then traveled to T.C. Cherry Elementary, where she had lunch with the preschool students.
Minter says she was thrilled to be part of the program, and she greatly enjoyed meeting the staff and students.
“Education is the lifeblood of this commonwealth. My successor is sitting out here in one of these classrooms. There is no better way for students to understand their representatives do actually represent them and listen to them. There’s no better way for them to get that message than for me to come to them,” Minter said.
Bowling Green High School principal Kyle McGraw says he’s thankful to have had representative minter today, so the students could have the chance to interact with an elected official.
“We really appreciate her coming in to Bowling Green High School. It’s great to have our representatives come into the building. We love that she’s so interested in public education that she’s willing to do this. It’s great that she has this boots on the ground approach,” McGraw said.
