Senator Curtis King is ‘student for a day’ at Heritage University

WA State Senator Curtis King got to see academic life through the eyes of a student, his own, as he donned a letterman’s jacket, met up with a student and experience Student for a Day at Heritage.

Senator King tagged along with Paige Delp, a senior studying environmental science. Paige took Senator King to her fisheries caught taught by assistant professor Alex Alexiades. Sen. King eagerly took notes with the school supplies he received at the start of his day. Professor Alexiades shared insights on fishery policy in Washington. King relied on his years of experience as a member of the Washington State Transportation Committee to contribute to the class conversation.

Soon it was time for lunch! Paige took him to the Eagle’s Café, where he had lunch with the students from the class. We are glad Senator King got the chance to experience Heritage University as our first Student for a Day, we hope to bring more to campus to experience the same this spring!
