Pasadena, CA.—Costume contests, 
haunted hallways, face painting and 
dancing were all part of the fun at Frostig 
School’s Fall Festival.

 Students posed for pictures at the 
photo booth, decorated pumpkins and 
ate their fill of pizza during the evening’s 
festivities. Shrieks of delight were 
occasionally heard coming from the 
haunted hallways.

Frostig School enrolls 125 students 
in grades 1-12 who have learning 
challenges, such as dyslexia and ADHD.

Assemblymember Chris Holden’s 2017 Young Legislators Program Leadership Program for High School Seniors in the 41st 
Assembly District

Pasadena, CA – Assemblymember Chris Holden (AD – 41) today 
announced the deadline extension for the 2017 Young Legislators 
Program to November 15 at 5 p.m. 

 “I’m thrilled to launch the second annual Young Legislators 
Program for the 41st Assembly District,” said Assemblymember 
Chris Holden. “We’ve put together a program that will have a lasting 
impact on participating students and maybe even inspire them to 
run for office one day.”

 The Young Legislators Program is a six-month, no-cost program 
that provides selected students from the 41st Assembly District an 
opportunity to learn about the legislative process, services provided 
to constituents by elected leaders, and the relationship between local 
and state governments. Students will meet at selected sites in the 
41st District for the first five sessions, and conclude with a two-day 
session in Northern California. 

 Last year’s final session involved a tour of the Facebook 
headquarters in Menlo Park, followed by a panel discussion with 
members of Facebook’s government affairs team. Day two brought 
the students to the California State Capitol where they toured the 
building, met Assemblymember Holden and sat in on a Senate 
Education Committee hearing. 

 “The Young Legislators Program allowed me to experience state 
government, make useful connections, and discover new, interesting 
options for my future,” said Darcy Stone, 2016 Young Legislator and 
now a freshman at the University of California, Berkeley. “It was a 
wonderful program and was glad to participate.” 

 The 2017 Young Legislators Program is open to high school 
seniors living in the 41st Assembly District. Applicants must 
commit to monthly Saturday meetings starting in January 2017 and 
submit applications by November 15, 2016. Program details and 
application are available online at
