Fifth grade students at Haynes Elementary School were treated to a special visit from California’s 35th District Congresswoman Norman Torres. Students sat attentively as Congresswoman Torres shared her journey to congress from her humble beginnings in Guatemala. Each year, Haynes’ 5th and 6th grade students learn about various college and career paths as part of the Promise Scholars program. In addition, they learn about various community partners that work to support our OMSD schools. This year, Congresswoman Torres helped students experience firsthand knowledge about the role of a congressperson and how the laws passed by Congress affect students in our schools. Several students expressed how the visit inspired them to do well in school and make responsible choices as they journey toward the college and career of their choice. Go Huskies!
