BOSTON – Senator Michael O. Moore (D-Millbury) recently welcomed a group of student leaders from the Grafton Job Corps to the Massachusetts State House. Senator Moore spoke with the students about his role as a state senator, and shared information about the history of the Senate Chamber. The students were accompanied by the Corps’ Recreation Coordinator, Michelle Cook.
“The Grafton Job Corps does a tremendous job providing students with the education and skills to pursue their future career goals,” said Senator Moore. “It makes me optimistic about the future of our Commonwealth seeing students take the initiative to learn more about the legislative process.”
“Grafton Job Corps’ Student Government Association was honored to have the opportunity to visit the State House,” said Michelle Cook. “The students enjoyed the in-depth tour of the building they received from tour guide Matt London and valued the opportunity to meet and speak with Senator Moore. They learned a lot from this experience. Several students intend on using the knowledge the Senator shared with them towards their own leadership roles at Grafton Job Corps.”
