Coy visits local schools



CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - Rep. Jeff Coy, D-Franklin, visited four Chambersburg schools Friday as part of a nationwide effort to focus attention on the importance of civics in education.

Coy was taking part in America's Legislators Back to School Day, designed to educate students about what it's like to be a legislator.

The purpose of the event was to help students understand the pressures, conflicts and difficulties legislators deal with in trying to solve public problems, Coy said.

Coy, who was accompanied by schools Superintendent Ed Sponseller, visited Chambersburg Area Senior High School, Chambersburg Area Middle School, Hamilton Heights Elementary School and J. Frank Faust Junior High School.
