Plymouth Literacy Program
GED Students Visit
The State House in Boston

On April 17, 2003, students in the library literacy GED classes and their teachers visited the State House and met with local representatives, Vinny DeMacedo and Tom O’Brien.

Both representatives greeted students in the House chambers to provide them with first hand knowledge of how the state government works. A question and answer time was most informative as well.

 

    

The students then took a tour through the State House. The tour guide spoke of the history of the building’s architecture and its design. Other highlights of the tour were the Hall of Flags and the Senate chambers.

After a stop at Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market, the students commented, “it was the best exhaustion felt in years.” The trip made them feel like “proud citizens who are involved with history.” The students hope that this will become an annual event.
