Immaculate Heart High School Students’ Virtual Meeting with Congressman Adam Schiff
More than 175 Immaculate Heart High School (IHHS) students joined U.S. Congressman Adam Schiff in a virtual meeting Monday hosted by social studies chair Mike Edwards. Fielding questions, Schiff addressed his efforts to bring relief to those struggling financially due to the coronavirus and urged his audience to listen to health care professionals as the country wrestles with the pandemic. “We all have a role to play in stopping the virus,” he said, adding, “I know these are challenging times for all, but we are going to get through this.” Schiff said he remains optimistic for the future largely because of the “bright, energetic, idealistic young people” he regularly meets, including students at Immaculate Heart.
