Madison, WI — Senator Chris Kapenga (R – Delafield) announced today that Emma Kuehn has successfully completed the 2020 Senate Scholar Program. High school juniors and seniors from around the State of Wisconsin participated in a week-long, intensive program at the State Capitol.
While in the program, Emma was introduced to many facets of the legislative process. She met with legislative support agencies, legislative staff, the Governor’s staff, a Supreme Court Justice, the media, lobbyists and University of Wisconsin-Madison faculty members. Emma then put her knowledge into action. Last week’s events culminated in a Senate Scholar committee hearing on a bill that Emma helped draft.
