Kissell at Cannon School

CONCORD ó U.S. Rep. Larry Kissell (D-8th) visited with Cannon School juniors on April 19 to talk about American history, government and current events.
Kissell spoke with the class about his work in Congress and the importance of continued youth involvement in public service.
ěI believe that we must work to make sure that the generations that come after us have the opportunity of a better life than we did, and I know that these engaged students share that sentiment,î said Kissell. ěTheir commitment to service and involvement in our community is a sign of the true dedication to a quality education that is embodied here at Cannon School.î
A former high school civics teacher, Kissell took questions from the students, many of whom are enrolled in U.S. government and civics classes at the school.
ěWe so much appreciated and enjoyed Congressman Kissellís visit with the students,î said Matt Gossage, head of school at Cannon School. ěItís obvious he is still a teacher at heart. It was a genuine and authentic exchange between a man who cares about education in our state and nation, and students who are active and care about the future of our country.î
