State Representative Steve Huffman (R-Tipp City) today welcomed Advanced Placement Government students from Chaminade-Julienne High School in Dayton to Columbus to visit the Ohio Statehouse and the Ohio Supreme Court. He was joined by his colleague State Representative Michael Henne (R-Clayton).


The high school seniors toured the Ohio House Chambers, where they participated in a mock session with the legislators. They had the opportunity to debate and vote on issues like medical marijuana, the death penalty, and access to firearms.


The students also met with Justice Sharon Kennedy during their tour of the Ohio Supreme Court building, where she discussed with them details about the judicial branch and what she does as a Supreme Court Justice.


“I truly enjoyed hosting the high school’s AP Government seniors during their visit to Columbus today,” said Rep. Huffman. “The students seemed to learn a lot about state government while also enjoying themselves. Special thanks to their teacher, Angela Ruffolo, for successfully preparing her class for the visit.”
