Five students, two Board members and two staff from the Tukwila School District visited Olympia in January to provide the students with a civics lesson and to talk with legislators about how the state supports education. The students got a chance to visit with the two Foster High School graduates in the legislature, Senator Mark Mullet and Representative Mia Gregerson as well as 11 th District Representatives Zack Hudgins and Steve Bergquist. The students also met Governor Jay Inslee and got a tour of Secretary of State Kim Wyman’s office. Finally, the students had 45 minutes to discuss various legal issues with two Supreme Court Justices, Justice Mary Yu and Justice Steven Gonzalez and tour the Temple of Justice.
