Nearly 20 students traveled with Office of Student Engagement & Retention Director Carmen Velasquez and staff member Eloisa Cordova to Austin to meet with legislators on Community College Day today.  The Texas Association of Community Colleges schedules the day as a way for students to meet with their representatives and observe the legislative process.

Sen. Uresti tweeted: Just met with an ambitious group of students from Palo Alto College.  Heart of the Southside!

The students also were scheduled to meet with State Rep. Phillip Cortez, a PAC alumni who served on Student Government when he attended here.

They were prepared for their visits with training by faculty members in the Speech Department and were armed with information about the current legislative agenda and talking points.

Students relax in Austin.
