U.S. Representative Steve Womack visited Forest Heights Elementary School on Tuesday, September 3, to make a donation to the school’s library and answer questions from students during an assembly.

 

Womack, currently in his ninth year in Congress, spent about 45 minutes with students in the school cafeteria before presenting new books to the school librarian. He shared his four keys to success — getting an education, displaying good behavior, living a healthy life and being kind to one another.

 

At the conclusion of the assembly, students asked Womack a broad range of questions, such as the role of a Congressman, when and why he ran for public office and whether he had ever met the president.

 

Womack had met the president at least three times, he said, drawing a big reaction from the first-, second-, third- and fourth-grade students in attendance. He then pulled out his cell phone to share some photos of the two together as students crowded around the Congressman for a closer look.
