On January 31st, Washington State Attorney General and Gubernatorial Candidate Rob Mckenna showed his dedication to education and service by spending his afternoon visiting Roxhill Elementary School and the City Year JPMorgan Chase Team. Attorney General Mckenna was greeted at the doors by very excited Roxhill students who have been mentored and tutored by City Year corps members. Roxhill Principal, Carmela Dellino, and City Year corps member, Ruchi Bagrodia, gave the Attorney General a tour of Roxhill Elementary and spent time in a classroom that demonstrated how teachers, students and City Year corps members work together to generate academic success.
Following the tour of the school, Attorney General Mckenna was invited to a discussion about the partnership between Roxhill and City Year. The students shared how they have been impacted by City Year interventions and Principal Dellino described City Year’s positive influence on school climate and academic gains.
Thank you for visiting with Roxhill and City Year, Washington State Attorney General Rob Mckenna!
