"I really enjoy the opportunity to share what I do as a state representative with students from our district," Roegner said. "It is really fun to engage the students in role playing, debating bills and voting in the House Chambers. What better way for the students to gain a deep understanding of Ohio's legislative process?"

The summer reading program was designed to encourage students to visit their local libraries and to get them engaged in the exciting world of books and reading. To enter to win, contestants were asked to write down five books they read on a special bookmark and drop the bookmark off at a local library. Winning bookmarks were selected at random.
