Students from Carl Albert State College recently attended Higher Education Day at the Oklahoma State Capitol. The event was held on Tuesday, February 11th.
Nine students from Carl Albert represented the college during the day’s festivities. Four students from the OAEA and five students from the Student Government Association had the opportunity to enjoy lunch with legislators from the Carl Albert district, visiting about educational opportunities, career aspirations, and the role higher education plays in the future of Oklahoma’s economic viability.
The students ended their day by attending the formal Higher Education Day program in the House of Representatives Chamber.
Many inspirational speakers offered insight into the benefits of higher education. The speakers included Lt. Gov. Matt Pinnell, officials from the State Regents office, select Representatives, and students from across the state who have benefited from the opportunities provided through higher education.
