US Congresswoman Kendra Horn Empowered Student Leaders

Written By: Christina Gray

The United States Congresswoman Kendra Horn visited the Langston campus on November 7, 2019. During her visit, she delivered a powerful presentation to the community on effective ways to communicate with their elected officials.

 

She encouraged the students to look past initial perceptions and be willing to question their assumptions.

 

“The perception is that we only live in the extremes. We have to change that dialogue,” Horn said. 

 

She explained that people often believe that she is extreme in her political beliefs. She challenged the students to inspire change by sharing their stories, know their resources, and find ways to get involved.

 

“Looking for opportunities to get engaged, that’s how you can start to move the needle,” she said. “And that is how you change the world.”
