Sitting in on caucus meetings, dining at the Governor’s residence, and introducing her own bill were among the highlights of Sturgeon Bay High School junior Nalani Bicoy’s experience last week as a Wisconsin Senate Scholar. Bicoy and nine other students spent a part of the week in Madison learning about the inner workings of state government. She says the best piece of advice she received during her experience as a Wisconsin Senate Scholar came from a state Supreme Court Justice Rebecca Dallet.
Bicoy, who was nominated by former state Senator Caleb Frostman, says juniors and seniors should participate in the program if they have the opportunity.
