Part of the mission at Amy Biehl High School (ABHS) is community engagement. In support of that mission, two of our students and a teacher attended a town hall meeting in Albuquerque conducted by US Representative Debra Haaland.
Emese Nagy and Valeria Martinez-Hernandez represented our school at the town meeting. Valeria was picked to ask a question and she asked, “How can the youth who are too young to vote make change in the community?” Debra Haaland gave a great response and the students are already working towards some goals. After the event, many people came to ask them what school they went to and they proudly said ABHS. They made a lot of great connections and were surprised that they were the only high school students there. It shocked them that not more students were politically involved. We also got to meet Debra personally and she thanked them for the question and their attendance.
