Congressman Jimmy Panetta visits Middle School

Jimmy Panetta, member of the United States House of Representatives for California's 20th congressional district visited All Saints' as part of our Middle School Speaker Series on Monday, April 30.

After sharing his views on the importance of public service and giving back to our country, he answered questions from our students. Topics ranged from his upbringing here on the Central Coast, to how he deals with his Dad's political career and its impact on his own career, to the importance of bipartisan politics, as well as the importance how to handle differences of opinions.

It was a very informative and inspiring morning for our students. Thank you to Rep. Jimmy Panetta for taking time out of his busy schedule.

Previous speakers of the Middle School Speaker Series include Mark Mancina, award-winning composer, John Stenderup, mountaineer & motivational speaker, and Kevin Lewand, species collector for the Monterey Bay Aquarium.
