Dana West Students Attend Student Government Day

On Oct. 22, students from Mr. Chaloux's Advanced Placement United States Government class attended Cayuga County's 2019 “Student Government Day.” In an effort to provide students a window into local government, the Cayuga County Legislature opened up its session to area high school seniors.

Additionally, Ava Mills got the chance to work alongside County District #3 Representative Ben Vitale during a Legislative meeting!
