On May 15th, our fourth, fifth, and sixth graders had the opportunity to have Representative Josh Dobson come and speak with us about how laws and government work in North Carolina. This visit was in preparation for our field trip to Raleigh on May 19th to visit our State Capitol, Legislative building, and the History Museum. Representative Dobson explained his duties as our representative for McDowell, Avery, and Mitchell counties. Students had the opportunity to ask questions regarding his work and how state government operates. We were very excited and thankful for his time that he spent with us, and we look forward to visiting the Capitol!
