The Boys & Girls Clubs of West Central Missouri welcomed U.S. Rep. Vicky Hartzler Thursday as she toured the Sedalia Middle School Site.

Hartzler, who was in Sedalia for several planned stops including a teen leadership summit at State Fair Community College, was able to speak to approximately 50 SMS members about her work in Washington, D.C. She also answered questions from members, which ranged from “what do you like about your job?” to “have you met the president?” to “do you have baby ducks on your farm?”

The congresswoman then toured the site, peeking in on programming and speaking with members individually about the Club.

“The Club is thankful to Congresswoman Hartzler for taking time out of her busy schedule to tour the Club and interact with members,” said Communications Coordinator Emily Jarrett. “The members enjoyed meeting her and learning more about her views and the work she’s done in Washington.”
