Tennessee state Sen. Mike Bell visited Waterville Community Elementary School on Friday, Feb. 23.
He and several educators toured the school and looked at the diversity it contains. He was able to see first hand the reading program that Bradley County has implemented and how the students' needs are being met.
Students were able to hear about Bell's job in Nashville as a lawmaker and the importance their voice has in his ability to make decisions.
Heather Hayes, Waterville's dean of students, said, "It is so important for our legislators to be involved in our schools. The school system affects so many people in many different ways, so their understanding and knowledge of all the impacting issues is critical to their informed decision making."
Principal Jennifer Huskins said "Involving the community is such an important part of our school. It's a part of our name, so having Senator Bell visit is such a great addition to furthering our community circle."
