From Shannon Cuttle:
The SOMA Action Student Leadership Committee was honored last Thursday in Trenton by the state of NJ for efforts around gun control, student leadership and social justice advocacy.
Assemblywoman Mila Jasey and Assemblyman John McKeon on behalf of the state of NJ honored the student leadership committee with a State House resolution in their honor and were given a standing ovation from the floor of the Assembly. Columbia High School, Maplewood Middle School and South Orange Middle School also got a shout out on the assembly floor.
Students also were invited to meet with Gov. Phil Murphy and he commended the students and invited them to continue to work with his administration in the future.
The students had a private tour of the NJ State House and were treated to a special luncheon. It was a great day for the students, SOMSD and our community. We are super proud of our students and all there hard work.
A day later, student activist David Hogg, a survivor of the Parkland school shooting, tweeted his support for the students.
