STEPHENS CITY, VA - It's not everyday a high school student gets to meet with a U.S. official one on one. However, students at Shanendo High got to spend a good hour with Congressman Frank Wolf up close and personal as he addressed some of our nations biggest issues.
Both the students and wolf engaged in a discussion on current issues from the economy to gun control. Wolf shared his ideas of possible solutions.
"We need to come together. Put everything on the table. Bring in additional revenue by closing tax loop holes. But reforming the entitlements, says Wolf.
Besides sharing his views and ideas in the political arena, wolf also gave the ap government students advice about their future goals.
"If you have a commitment and you're willing to pay the price and set your goals high the chances are you can achieve them. But paying the price is the really difficult part, says Wolf.
"It was really interesting to see his background and what he had been trying to do on certain issues. What his take was on it and how firm he was on issues he had been voting on," says student McKenna Kendrick.
