Jannifer Young, Elk Ridge, and Michelle Jorgensen, Mountain Shadows, attended Educator Day on the Hill. Jannifer was invited to the House Kitchen for a while. She also sent messages to Representative Hughes. Michelle and I gave Senator Osmond a stack of thank you notes. He continues to work on n education bill in conjunction with UEA. We were able to talk to Representative Bird about a couple of his bills. We also spoke with Representative Merlynn Newbold and asked her about the education budget. She said, "We are funding growth. We need more [money] above the line, not below the line." I hope this is true.
