L.Campbell talks about her experience: "Through project discovery I received the opportunity to speak to the legislature and the House of Delegates. My speech consisted of the opportunities awarded to me by project discovery. I also talked about why I thought the House of Delegates should keep funding project discovery. Through this opportunity I learned how to speak in front of large groups of people. The House of Delegates took my speech to heart and approved project discovery for another year." We are very proud of L. Campbell and how she represents AHS!
