Senator Rand Paul visits South Warren High School
BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) - Students at South Warren High School received a visit from Senator Rand Paul Monday morning.
The senator was invited to the school to speak with students interested in government and political science.
The senator spoke to about the government’s role in national and global events and the limits it should adhere to outlined in the Constitution.
“I think it’s important for the students to understand where these debates come from, they’re not new,” he said. “We had debates over separate but equal, Brown vs Board, Roe vs Wade. Sometimes these debates don’t happen over a six year period but over a 50 year period.”
Paul encouraged their students to live in and experience their communities before entering politics, and hopes that it would help them gain perspective into how the lives of citizens are affected by government actions.
After the presentation, students were able to ask the senator a variety of questions from how he got into politics to what it was like to run for President. Students were gifted copies of the Constitution by the Senator and his team as a thank you and investment in the next generation.
