130 students from Hamilton County will travel to Nashville this Wednesday, for Tennessee PTA "Students Storm the Hill" Legislative Day at the Tennessee State Capitol in Nashville. 100 5th grade students from Nolan Elementary and 30 students who are members of Sale Creek High School's student council will make the trip.
Students from Hamilton County, along with 220 students from the rest of the state, will attend Senate and House legislative sessions, Senate and House committee meetings, and meet face-to-face with their state legislators. The students are scheduled to take part in a mock vote to learn how a bill becomes a law, and take a group picture with Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam. Students will also be able to tour the State Capitol, and visit the Tennessee State Museum next door, where the Emancipation Proclamation is currently on display.
