Sen. Manar Called "Principal" For a Day
He's run for state office, and debated in-depth legislation with some of the state's top politicians. But today, state Sen. Andy Manar may have tackled his biggest challenge yet.
The Macoupin County Democrat was Principal for the Day at Pana Junior High. He visited classes, talked to students, and even got an education from local educators.
"So far so good," Manar said. "It's been a while since I've been in junior high, but this is something I've looked forward to for several weeks."
One of the subjects he touched on when speaking to students today was the importance of young people being involved in public service. He stressed the need to be more aware of issues, because the more participation we have, the better off we will all be.
