Representatives of Cleveland Middle School’s Tiger Valley government were honored to spend a day at the State Capitol in Oklahoma City last week. The students were greeted by State Representative Dennis Casey. He was able to take the students into the House of Representatives’ gallery to watch a bill being debated on the floor of the House. He spent time explaining the process that was taking place on the floor. The students were then taken to the Senate Gallery where Senator A.J. Griffin presented them to the Senate as the Tiger Valley Government. Senator Griffin (shown with the students below in the Senate lounge) then arranged for the students to be taken on the Senate floor. The students then toured the Capitol building. On the way home students stopped in Guthrie to see the first Capital of the Great State of Oklahoma. Students that went to the Capitol were Elizabeth Maker (Tiger Valley mayor), Miguel Esparza (Tiger Valley vice mayor), Jackson Ward (Tiger Valley treasurer), Ashton Miller, Mikayla Barabasz, Corbin Bartley, Macie Chenoweth and Chloe Smith. CMS teacher Jennifer White accompanied the students. CMS’s Tiger Valley Micro Society (named ‘Rookie of the Year’ nationwide) was featured on KOTV Channel 6 this week.
