Men of Distinction Visits the Virginia State Capitol Building
On Monday, February 24, 2014, the Men of Distinction (MOD) from Essex Intermediate School had an opportunity to visit the Virginia State Capitol Building. Forty young men, dressed in their best, took a tour of the building. They had a chance to hear information about the establishment of the building and they sat in rooms once sat in by the great politicians of our time. These young men carried themselves in an appropriate manner and received many compliments by several leaders in the building. These leaders spoke about their quietness, politeness and demeanor. Finally, they had an opportunity to be a part of the House of Delegates meeting that took place on that day. Delegate Hodges, Tappahannock's representative, introduced them on the floor. Essex Intermediate School would like to honor the members of MOD. We would also like to thank the chaperones which included Mr. Michael Stewart, Mr. Bobby Byrd, Mrs. Tara Roane and Mr. Silas Roane.
