How often do you get a personal response from a legislator? Not often. However, second graders at got their wish on March 2 when State Rep. Calvin Hill (R-Canton) responded to their invitation by visiting and reading to their class.
In November, students in Lacy Savage's second grade class wrote Hill about their donation to the Wreath of America Organization. The students auctioned off a lifesize soldier scarecrow at the school's fall festival to raise funds for the organization. Hill responded to their donation with a letter.
Then the second graders wrote additional letters inviting Hill to come read with them on on March 2, which he did.
