Elected officials encourage West Catholic students ahead of AP government exam

May 7, 2019

Students in West Catholic High School's AP government class received some special words of encouragement ahead of taking the Advanced Placement exam this week.

Teacher Emilee Lowell contacted area elected officials at the city, state and federal levels and invited them to share videos wishing good luck to the students. They received messages from Grand Rapids Mayor Rosalynn Bliss, State Rep. Mark Huizenga, U.S. Rep. Bill Huizenga, U.S. Rep. Justin Amash, and State Sen. Winnie Brinks. Their messages can be seen in the video below.

The students took their AP government exam on Monday.
