“As a student at Hamilton West I participated in GALRE.  The experiences and knowledge I gained from GALRE have stayed with me to this day, which is why I continue to enjoy speaking to the High School students throughout our legislative district,” said Assemblyman Benson. “As a legislator I spend a lot of hours at the State House but I definitely learned a few new facts on today’s tour and I encourage all of our areas schools to take advantage of having the State Capitol nearby and signup for a tour for their students in the coming school year.”
