 A contingent from the Grossmont-Cuyamaca Community College District recently visited Washington, D.C. to participate in the ACCT National Legislative Summit and advocate with their federal legislators for support of community colleges.

Members of the group were Chancellor Cindy L. Miles; Governing Board President Bill Garrett; Governing Board Vice President Edwin Hiel; Student Trustees Zack Gianino and Elsa Hernandez; and Communications and Public Information Director Anne Krueger.

It was Zack and Elsa's first trip to Washington, in a trip that was made more memorable when a foot of snow fell on Washington and crippled the city.

They had a chance to spend a few hours touring the U.S. Capitol and exploring some of the museums on the Mall.

The group met with Reps. Duncan Hunter, Susan Davis and Juan Vargas, Sen. Barbara Boxer and a staffer for Sen. Dianne Feinstein. The ACCT group also heard from Sens. Marco Rubio, Tim Scott, Lamar Alexander, Charles Schumer and Elizabeth Warren.

Here are some photos from the trip.
