Heritage Academy 5th-8th grade students got to explore the State Capital and show their school spirit in the School Choice Rally. Students got to meet Idaho Attorney General Raúl Labrador and learn about his early years and how he got to where he is today, crediting is mom for his success by continuously advocating for his education. It was an inspiring story to hear. Students then cheered fellow classmate Victoria Rivas on while she presented her speech on the steps of the Capital. After lunch they toured the treasurer’s wing with Julie Ellsworth and got to see inside the original vault and even take peek at a secret elevator. They finished the day seeing a demonstration of a robot built by students from a school in the Treasure Valley.
