“A lot of focus is on national and state politics, but in reality, local politics are what affect us the most,” said Daniel Lehman, a Cypress Creek student. “It was neat to see local politics in action and be able to help them out a little bit tonight.”

“Thank you for allowing us to get an internal look at the affairs and politics of the district,” said Avery Davis, a Cypress Ridge student. “From the perspective of the student, you just go to school every day and don’t really have an appreciation for what goes on behind the scenes with our leadership. This was very cool seeing the infrastructure of the district from this perspective.”
