Rocket senior J. Michael Bond participated in the U.S. Youth Senate program recently in Washington D.C.! During his trip J. Michael visited the Supreme Court, Congress, Senate and listened to many speak on current issues. J. Michael also personally meet with our own Senators, Jim Inhofe and James Lankford. Additionally, he visited the White House and met with the President, Vice-President, and First Lady!
"My favorite aspect about the trip was connecting and making friends with the 103 delegates from all 50 states, D.C. and two more countries. There wasn't a night that we went to sleep earlier than 3 o'clock AM, as we were too busy passionately discussing politics. The friends and connections I've made during this week are lifelong. Congressman John Lewis said to me, "be fearless in what lights your heart on fire" and I have never been more excited be afire", said J. Michael Bond.
