Ryan Costello at East High School

Congressman Ryan Costello, who represents the 6th congressional district to the U.S. House of Representatives, visited East High School and spoke to students taking American Government, Politics, and History courses during a special assembly on Friday, February 5.

Ryan Costello and East High School students and staffCostello led an interactive discussion, speaking to students about Congress, international relations, the economy, veterans affairs, his path to the position he currently holds, and much more to an engaged audience filled with juniors and seniors. Costello also took time to answer questions, both during the assembly and with students individually at the conclusion of his presentation.

“Studying Congress and the role and powers of the representatives of the people are important aspects of these courses,” said Todd Lorback, the East High School teacher who coordinated Costello’s visit. “Having direct contact with a serving member helps students to humanize what may seem a distant institution.”
