Representative Espich Partners with ACELINK

On Wednesday, April 12, three area high schools participated in the IPFW Virtual Town Hall Meeting (Fort Wayne, Indiana) with Indiana Representative Jeff Espich. The Representative, also chair of the House Ways and Means committee, joined students from Elmhurst, Leo and Paul Harding to discuss the state budget, spending priorities and answer students' questions. Andy Downs, IPFW's director of the Mike Downs Center for Indiana Politics, moderated the discussion from IPFW's Kettler Hall. Students from each location interacted with the Representative in the live two-way video meeting supported by ACELINK and a multipoint control bridge at East Allen County Schools.

The next Town Hall Meeting will be May 12, and our guest will be determined soon. For information on signing up for this free program, contact Sandy Schaufelberger at 260-481-0747 or schaufes@ipfw.edu.
