WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) met this week with nearly 60 middle school students and staff from Old Trail School, located in Summit County. Each year the Bath school organizes a middle school trip to the nation’s capital. This year’s trip is organized by art teacher Jeff Eason.
“I always enjoy meeting with students both at home in Ohio and here in our nation’s capital. The Old Trail students’ thoughtful questions and commentary are yet another reminder of the excellence of our state’s schools and faculty. Their parents and teachers should be proud of these inquisitive and engaged young people,” Brown said. “That’s why I will continue to fight for the resources needed to ensure that their future remains bright. I hope that their visit to Washington will encourage these students to become active participants in our democracy.”
According to its website, Old Trail is a co-educational day school serving nearly 600 students, from five Ohio counties, in toddler/adult classes through eighth grade. The school is a member of the National Association of Independent Schools, Ohio Association of Independent Schools, and the Independent Schools Association of the Central States.
