The Lansing Journal journeys: Washington DC

Lansing resident and Illiana teacher Jeff White (far right) is part of a national program called Close Up, which gives high school students opportunities to see their government in action. On this trip, students got to meet with Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, and she was delighted at the opportunity to become informed about a variety of topics in The Lansing Journal.
