WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) today greeted 150 students from Shelby Middle School at the United States Capitol. The 8th graders are visiting Washington as part of an end-of-year school trip.
“Shelby Middle Schools rejuvenate my faith in our great state. Their parents, teachers, and community should be proud of these inquisitive and engaged young people,” Sen. Brown said. “That’s why I will continue to fight for the resources needed to ensure that their future remains bright. I hope that viewing the monuments honoring the Americans who committed themselves to public service will encourage these students to become active participants in our democracy.”
Shelby Middle School is located in downtown Shelby and was originally constructed in 1924. The public middle school currently enrolls 400 students in grades 7-8.
