N.C. Sen. Mary Wills Bode visited the campus of Granville Early College High School as part of the inaugural Bring Your Legislator to School Day.
Bode was elected to represent District 18, which includes part of Granville County, in November.
During her visit, Bode toured the school with Principal Jackie Harris, Superintendent Dr. Alisa McLean and several members of the board of education. A group of students provided special entertainment for the visit.
“We were delighted to have Senator Bode visit our district,” said Board Chair Glenda Williams. “I was very proud of our students for being amazing leaders and sharing information about their wonderful school.”
Lawmakers were invited by members of the NC Teacher of the Year and Principal of the Year Network, the Public School Forum of North Carolina, and bi-partisan legislative sponsors to visit schools in their respective jurisdictions and engage with school communities. Bode was one of more than 70 legislators to accept the invitation to participate.
McLean said she appreciated the legislator taking the time to come to the school. “It was wonderful to have Senator Bode in our district today. We loved her spending time with our students and taking an interest in our schools.”
