Bonamici hears from students about their work experience
For the price of a cup of tea, U.S. Rep. Suzanne Bonamici heard four Hillsboro High School students talk about their work experience at the First Tech Credit Union coffee shop.
All of them are enrolled in the business/marketing course, one of 10 the school offers in career and technical education. The district's other high schools have their own offerings.
Bonamici, a Democrat from Beaverton who represents the 1st District congressional seat, stopped by Friday, April 5. She was accompanied by Hillsboro Mayor Steve Callaway, himself a retired teacher and school administrator, and Hillsboro Superintendent Mike Scott.
"I agree with you that hands-on education and relevant learning are important," Bonamici said.
