We had some amazing middle and high school students testifying in the We the People Mock Congressional Hearings this past weekend, demonstrating their outstanding knowledge of the U.S. Constitution. We would like to thank the students who participated, as well as the teachers, parents, judges, attorneys, and professors that donated their time and expertise to this valuable program. We would also like to thank former We the People student and now attorney, Ashlee Pouncey, for sharing her story with our students. To learn more about the program, visit the We the People page.
