This month, Barrio Logan College Institute had the opportunity to lead Congresswoman Sara Jacobs on a tour of our Barrio Logan site. She met with our students and staff to learn more about BLCI’s mission and services.
Congresswoman Jacobs opened the door for our fourth graders to ask her questions. One student asked about a close-to-home situation regarding the border, while others asked if there really are three types of government. Congresswoman Jacobs decided to test students’ knowledge of the government and asked how many votes it took for Congress to pass a piece of legislature. One student went as far as to do the math in his head for the number of votes it would take to break a tie - he didn't even need a piece of paper!
One of BLCI’s seniors was looking forward to meeting the congresswoman, but couldn’t due to a time conflict, so she recorded a video giving the student some words of wisdom!
During the tour, Congresswoman Jacobs was attentive and engaged with the Barrio Logan site, asking in-depth questions about the facility and our programs. She authentically demonstrated her support for BLCI’s services and offered to provide additional assistance for students regarding the Student Loan Debt Relief application.
We appreciate Congresswoman Jacobs taking the time and effort to meet and engage with BLCI students and staff!
