Attendees included: Top Row (L-R), Campus Director Andy Hoeveler, Grace Monserud; Middle Row: Service Learning Coordinator Amy Harms Hoad, Sarah Adams, Shaun Ulrich; Front Row: Casey Morgan, Terence Kruger, Ceresa Young.

Six students and three staff members from the Minnesota School of Business-Plymouth had the chance to take an active role in the legislative process on Tuesday. The group served as campus representatives at the Minnesota Career College Association’s (MCCA) Hill Day at the Minnesota State Capitol in St. Paul.

Students heard from Minnesota’s new Director of Higher Education, Larry Pogemiller, and had the chance to tell local legislators their story about their higher education choice. The day concluded with the opportunity to attend the House Higher Education Policy and Finance Committee meeting.

“It was very enlightening for me to learn more about how our government works,” Plymouth student Shaun Ulrich said. “I thought that [Senator] Gen Olson was very knowledgeable and wanted to hear our stories and thoughts.”

The Plymouth campus representatives included Ulrich, Sarah Adams, Terence Kruger, Grace Monserud, Casey Morgan and Ceresa Young. They were accompanied by Campus Director Andy Hoeveler, Service Learning Coordinator Amy Harms Hoad and Communications and Community Relations Specialist Matt Marek.

The MCCA represents private post-secondary schools and colleges, which are accredited by an accrediting agency recognized by the United States Department of Education. Membership is made up of 14 postsecondary institutions and numerous campus locations throughout the state.
