HARRISONBURG, Va. (WHSV) -- Senator Tim Kaine held his first-ever classroom Skype session with students from Harrisonburg High School on Friday.
He joined Beth Stombaugh-Hook’s 12th grade government class and discussed topics including bipartisanship, the situation in Ukraine and college affordability.
“I loved having the opportunity to hold my first Skype session with Harrisonburg High School seniors this morning," said Kaine. "Students always ask the toughest questions, and we covered a lot of ground today from college affordability to Ukraine. It’s clear the students are well informed about what’s happening in Congress and are concerned with local and national issues. Video conferencing is an excellent way to communicate with young students and share more about my work in the Senate and the importance of public service. I look forward to similar opportunities in the future and hope other classrooms across Virginia won’t hesitate to reach out to us.”
