Tucson, AZ -- Alta Vista High School graduating senior, Ana Paola Buelna, will meet with members of congress today. Because of Ms. Buelna’s proximity to Mexico, she will be asking questions about Immigration Reform. She will also inquire about how congress "will continue to support alternative charter schools” like hers.
She will meet with Senator Jeff Flake at 10 a.m., representative Raul Grijalva at 12 p.m. and Senator John McCain at 3 p.m.
Buelna is experiencing democracy in action as she spends her spring break in Washington D.C. with the Close Up Foundation. She is the only representative from AZ in attendance.
Her interest in political science, as former student body president, and her academic strength in American history and government classes support why we are so proud that she is representing AVHS and The Leona Group in Washington D.C.
