Richmond Signature Programs
Annual Legislative Trip to the Nation’s Capitol
We have taken our children to the Nation's Capitol to meet with legislators such as Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, Congressmen R. Scott, Senator John Warner and the late Congresswoman Stephanie Tubbs Jones. We were fortunate enough to take a group of students (from Elkhardt Middle School) to meet with then-Senator-now-President of the United States -- President Barack Obama.
