Three Phoenix Union student delegates travelled to New York to participate in NBC’s Education Nation Summit, October 5-7.  The Helios Education Foundation, in partnership with Be a Leader Foundation, made the trip possible.  Sophomores Socorro Barragan Nieves, Franklin Police and Fire High School; Esther Avila Rodriguez, Carl Hayden and Epimenio Negrete Jr., North High joined two other students from Mesa who took part in the Student Town Hall, Sunday.   The national Summit is a culmination of the 2013 Education Nation Tour, which stopped in Phoenix last May. 


“We know it is critical to include students in any conversation related to education.  We need to hear their thoughts and perspectives as they are the most important beneficiaries of a strong education system,” Helios President and CEO Paul Luna said.
