Senator Bob Mensch held his annual Senator for a Day seminar on October 13, 2017 at the Perkiomen School located in Pennsburg, PA.
The seminar allowed high school students from the 24th Senatorial District to role play as a State Senator in a mock legislative session. Students selected a committee based on their area of interest and debated and discussed the mock legislation that had been presented to them.
Various lobbyists and legislative staff were on hand to guide the students through the committee process and assist them as needed. After the students discussed the legislation in their committees, a general session commenced, at which time all students voted on all of the legislation voted out of committee.
Students from Brandywine Heights High School, Lansdale Catholic High School, North Penn High School, Oley Valley High School, Palisades High School, Perkiomen School, Pottsgrove High School, Pottstown High School, and Upper Perkiomen High School attended the event, resulting in an impressive turnout of almost 90 students.
