Stine, Fischer to Visit Moyer Students, Give Lesson on Civics and Public Service

Kentucky legislators Katie Stine and Joe Fischer will visit Ruth Moyer Elementary in November/Google

As part of the nationwide "America’s Legislators Back to School" Program, Kentucky State Sen. Katie Stine and recently re-elected State Rep. Joe Fischer will visit Ruth Moyer Elementary in Fort Thomas.

Stine, R-Southgate, and Fischer, R-Fort Thomas, will be teaching civics and public service to the elementary school students at 12:45 p.m. and 2:45 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 24.

The visit will come not long after the state announced that it will fund a major renovation project for the Moyer facilities.

Kentucky lawmakers from both chambers and both sides of the aisle have a history of active participation in the program, sponsored by the National Conference of State Legislatures. Each year, more than 15,000 Kentucky students from kindergarten through high school are reached through the professionally-designed curriculum, which is aimed at increasing students’ knowledge about history and government.

The program is non-partisan and non-political, instead giving students motivation to follow current events, gain a greater understanding of our system of representative government, and use their own critical thinking skills.
