St. Mary students travel to Annapolis to make voices heard

March 30, 2009

Six students from St. Mary Catholic School went to Annapolis on March 4 to visit with their representatives and make their voices heard.

The purpose of the trip was to discuss the BOAST (Building Opportunities for All Students and Teachers in Maryland) Bill with the Washington County delegation to the Maryland General Assembly. The BOAST Maryland Tax Credit will increase incentives for investment in education, and will boost financial support for students and teachers in public and nonpublic schools. BOAST will grant businesses a state income tax credit for their donations to scholarship organizations for nonpublic school students.

Washington County delegation members Sen. Donald Munson and Dels. John Donoghue, Christopher Shank and Andrew Serafini spent time with the students and provided information.

The students were able to voice their opinions on the bill and were able to see the Senate and House floors in action.
