VC delegation meets legislators, visits Texas State Capitol during Community College Day

Thirty-seven Victoria College students, accompanied by VC administrators, faculty and staff, and three VC Board of Trustees members, attended Community College Day on Tuesday at the Texas State Capitol in Austin. They visited with state Rep. Geanie Morrison, front row, third from left, and state Sen. Lois Kolkhorst, bottom photo, front row center. VC students were encouraged to share their stories and concerns with state lawmakers. The group also joined other Texas community college students at a morning rally on the south steps of the Capitol and viewed the Texas House and Senate chambers during an afternoon guided tour of the historic 127-year-old structure. “It was very informative and enjoyable,” said Brandi Behlen, a student at VC’s Gonzales Center attending the event. “I enjoyed visiting with our legislators face-to-face and hearing how they feel on certain issues. I also liked learning about the history of the State Capitol.”
