Government Class Skype's With US Representative Adrian Smith
On November 18th, while U.S. Government teacher, Craig Nobiling, was in Washington D.C. he sat in U.S. Representative of Nebraska's 3rd congressional district's office, Adrian Smith, for a Skype session to his government students back in Chadron. Skype is a free online live video conference. This allowed students to visit and ask questions to their U.S. Representative. Questions ranged from the national debt and social net programs to state issues and rural schools just to mention a few of the topics that students had prepared for Representative Smith. Rep Smith shared that he was impressed with the questions he was asked by students and would like the opportunity to share again and perhaps come to Chadron High School to personally visit with students.
Thank you to all of the students that participated in the video conference, and a special thanks to Mr. Nobiling, not only for setting up this opportunity for our students but for the many Twitter updates and pictures he had sent from his tours and visit in Washington D.C.
