WASHINGTON, D.C. – Yesterday, Congresswoman Johnson welcomed 27 scholars from the University of Texas at Dallas Eugene McDermott Scholars Program to the U.S. Capitol:

“It is always a pleasure to engage with students and hear the questions they pose,” said Congresswoman Johnson. “During the Q&A discussion the students showed such great interest in how legislative policies impact the future of scientific discovery, education and innovation. It is very apparent that these bright and intelligent-minded students are aware of how their generation and others can be impacted.”

“The questions asked are representative of the concerns being addressed from a larger group of our constituents and nation when discussing science and the process of how our government operates. I am confident that these young minds will be at the forefront of making significant changes in our community if they continue to thrive with their eagerness and curiosity.”
