On October 29 and 30, Kiara Scrafano, Kat Muniz, and Tabitha Hillman attended the Junior State of America Fall Congress for the state of Arizona. This was Peoria Accelerated’s first ever JSA event. At the Fall Congress, students from Yuma, Miami, Hayden, Tucson, Nogales, and the Greater Phoenix area attended the event, along with a student delegation from Albuquerque, New Mexico. Students participated in a mock Congress where student written bills were debated on both in committee and on the floor of both the House of Representatives and Senate. Peoria Accelerated’s own Kiara Scrafano was selected by her peers in her House committee as best speaker. Congratulations Kiara.
