Congressman 5th District meets with student leaders

Maryland Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-5th) of Mechanicsville met April 2 with student leaders from Prince George’s County and elsewhere in the state, to discuss issues important to students attending higher education institutions in Maryland.

The meeting, which took place at Capitol Technology University in Laurel, comprised 20 students from 14 colleges and universities, including CTU, Bowie State University, Prince George’s Community College in Largo, University of Maryland College Park and University of Maryland University College in Adelphi, said Hoyer spokeswoman Latoya Veal.

Veal said students discussed a number of concerns, including paying for college and workforce preparation.

“I was please to have student leaders from across Maryland join me today for a roundtable discussion about issues affecting them and their peers,” Hoyer said in a statement. “As a former student leader on campus at the University of Maryland, College Park, I wanted to speak directly with these future leaders and ensure that their concerns are heard.”
