The Woonsocket senior government class enjoyed a trip to Pierre on Tuesday, Feb. 16.
The class began their day at the Emergency Operations Center for a tour of the facility.  Lunch was next on their agenda with a stop at Pizza Ranch, courtesy of the Woonsocket American Legion.
Students sat in on the democratic caucus before spending time observing the legislature.  They were fortunate to be in the House gallery when U.S. Rep. Kristi Noem made an appearance to speak to the South Dakota legislators about legislative changes made in Washington, D.C., and praising them for the work they do for the people of South Dakota.
A highlight of the class’s trip was to meet our District 8 representatives, Senator Parsley and Representatives Wollmann and Heinemann. These representatives introduced the Woonsocket class in both the House and the Senate.
