MOUNT VERNON — On a whirlwind four-day trip through Washington, D.C., Mount Vernon High School history teacher and City Councilman Jeff Gottke’s AP government classes were able to get a close look at how domestic and international government operates.
“It was nice to meet with people who work for the federal government,” Junior Clare Mazzei explained to the News. “We got to meet with another student’s uncle, who is a lobbyist.” Mazzei said that this lobbyist works to regulate the accounting industry in the federal government.
The AP classes and trip, according to Mazzei, are beneficial to students who are considering careers in policy-making, as the trip allowed them to interact with policy-makers first-hand.
“I want a career where I can help people through policy,” Mazzei explained.
