Several students from Jefferson City High School participated in the “We the People” competition at the Capitol. During the course of nine weeks, these 13 students studied the U.S. Constitution in preparation for the competition, set up like a congressional style hearing. The students, seated from left, are JCHS junior Lydia Meyer, Claire Briggs and Naomi Felber, both seniors. Seated from left are Tim McDowell, retired educator; Charlie Hinderliter, Ph.D., and a “We the People” alumni; and Sander Sowers, attorney.
