Legislators of the Year
At the Make a Stand Rally the Legislator of the Year awards were presented. Annually, one legislator from each chamber recievieves the award. The award is given to legislators that have went above and beyond the call of duty to assist ASUM’s legislative interns. Representative Courtney Curtis (D-73) and Senator Kurt Schaefer (R-19) were the 97th General Assembly recipients. Representative Curtis has been instrumental in filing of House Bill 934 which creates a tax credit for employers that hire students for internships that major in S.T.E.M. related fields. Senator Schaefer once again sponsored Student Curator legislation and is leading the charge for capital improvement bonds that would benefit all four campuses.
