Nevada Senator Harry Reid met this week with students from Foothill High School in his Washington, D.C. office. More than a dozen students from the Henderson high school were visiting the city as part of a national program that brings students from across the country to Washington to learn about our nation's capitol.
"It was a pleasure to meet with these impressive students about the importance of participating in our democratic process," Reid said. "These aspiring teachers, nurses, engineers and entrepreneurs are the future of Nevada. I will continue fighting to ensure Nevada schools like Foothill High School have the resources and tools necessary to help make their dreams a reality."
The students were visiting through the Close Up Foundation, a non-profit organization that brings students from across the country to Washington, D.C. to learn about the operations of the federal government.
