C-Span Bus stops at St. Martin Middle School

This morning, the C-Span Tour Bus rolled into South Mississippi and made its first stop at St. Martin Middle School.

Students had a chance to hop on the bus and learn about C-Span’s coverage of the American political process through interactive kiosks and demonstrations.

The C-Span Bus is currently on a ‘Southern Swing’ tour, traveling for eight weeks through Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona. C-Span Marketing Representative Shannon Augustus said, “So, we try to teach them a little bit about C-Span and how we cover the news in Washington, D.C. and how we cover public affairs. We really try to give them a window into Washington. We really want to thank Cable One for bringing us out here because it has been a great time so far.”

The bus also stopped at Gulfport High School today and will make a stop at Biloxi High School tomorrow.
