“It was a true privilege to have him join our class discussion today,” remarked Mr. LaRocca. “The kids really appreciated his insight and ‘window’ on the real world.” Mayor Rolison spoke to them in detail about his path and career as a police officer and 12-year career in the Dutchess County legislature. Touching on politics and government, his message this morning largely focused on community and how we all can get involved and give back, regardless of your career path.

Senior, Roberto Leito was very impressed with today’s experience stating, “It was nice to hear from a local government official where we live and go to school. Gave me great insight into his daily interactions and responsibilities.”

Thank you, Mayor Rolison, for taking the time to visit our school today to share your experiences and ideas with our students!
