“I am happy to welcome Dr. Eric Hubbard and his students to the Senate Chamber,” said Sen. Ramsey. “We are on the cusp of a new legislative session and it is imperative that students research and learn the legislative process and issues that affect them and their communities.”
The students spent the day introducing and debating bills that they would like to see in the Georgia Legislature this year. Sen. Ramsey then critiqued and answered questions from the students. This is the seventh consecutive year that Sen. Ramsey has hosted students from Westwood College. Also, providing an overview of the administrative functions of the legislature was Secretary of the Senate, David Cook.
Westwood College is an institution of higher learning founded in Denver, Colorado in 1953. Today, Westwood has 14 campuses across California, Colorado, Georgia, Illinois and Virginia and an online campus. Westwood College has over 6500 students which provides three-year bachelor’s degrees in high-growth fields.
