Congresswoman Susan Wild Visits Fountain Hill Elementary Students

United States Representative Susan Wild visited students at Fountain Hill Elementary School for a question and answer session as part of CACLV’s SHE program on March 22, 2019.

The Congresswoman visited the school through the aid of the SHE program of the Community Action Committee of the Lehigh Valley.

Wild not only answered numerous questions from students, who prepared for her visit, but also gave advice on how to be positive in a negative environment.

Fountain Hill Elementary students asked questions about the “Green New Deal”, the Second Amendment, minority rights, and much more.

The Bethlehem Area School District would like to thank not only CACLV and SHE, but also Congresswoman Susan Wild for taking time out of her schedule to visit with students.
