#PointerNation Senior Griffin Albaugh was chosen to attend the Senate Scholar Program, which is an elite program designed to challenge Wisconsin’s best students.
Griffin represented Senate District 17, which is represented by Senator Howard Marklein, and spent the week in Madison, along with other high school Juniors and Seniors from around the state.
During the week, Griffin was introduced to many facets of the legislative process. He met with legislative support agencies, legislative staff, the Governor and First Lady, members of the media, lobbyists, Supreme Court clerks and University of Wisconsin-Madison faculty members. Griffin also attended the Governor’s 2023-25 Budget Address and was able to see the Joint Finance Committee in session, which Senator Marklein is co-chair.
The week’s events culminated in a Senate Scholar Committee hearing on a bill that Griffin helped draft. Griffin did an outstanding job representing Mineral Point!
