Ninety Six High School students attended The South Carolina Black Caucus Legislative Day October 31, 2017 in Columbia, South Carolina. The students were placed on committees and actually got to work with Senators and Representatives to see how a bill actually becomes a law.
The keynote speaker for Legislative Day was Dr. Victor Mark Brown, Dean for the Division of Business, Arts and Social Sciences at Bergen Community College in New Jersey. The students sat quietly to listen to Dr. Brown tell them that they have to have a plan or road map for success. He ended his speech with a message to students that encouraged them to act like success, and to dress like success. He reiterated that students need to look at someone who is in the profession that they aspire to be in and to dress like that person.
