Congressman Brandon Williams Visits SAS 2nd Graders

Syracuse Academy of Science 2nd Graders Invite Representative Brandon Williams to Class

Tuesday, April 11th, 2023: Congressman Brandon Williams came to visit Syracuse Academy of Science Elementary School. 2nd graders wrote two letters to his office inviting him to be a speaker to our students. We were honored that he chose to accept our offer! The Congressman not only spent some time reading to Atoms, but he also told them about why he chose a job in the government and how his desire to make changes to our country and serve the citizens was his driving force. He told us that he hasn't been part of the government for very long, only about 100 days, and shared what he did for a living before entering the government. Congressman Williams was in the Navy and spent most of his time on a submarine off the coast of San Francisco. He shared details with students about how long he was on the submarine, what he ate, how large it was, and how the submarine could descend and then return to the water's surface. Students could also ask questions about the hardest and best parts of his job as a Congressman!

SANY Superintendent Dr. Hayali took the Congressman and his wife on a tour of our school. What a wonderful experience for our 2nd-grade Atoms! Thank you, Congressman Williams!
