Secretary Of State Sam Reed Making A Tour Of State Colleges

Before he retires in January, Secretary of State Sam Reed plans to go back to college – many colleges, actually.

Reed is ready to start his annual tour of college campuses statewide, encouraging students to vote and become more engaged in their communities. Reed also will emphasize civility in politics and society.

Beginning April 9, Reed will visit 45 campuses, stretching from Bellingham to Vancouver, and from Aberdeen to Pullman. It will be the largest number of schools he’s visited since beginning the springtime tradition in 2006. Reed toured 40 campuses last year.

He’ll visit Yakima Valley Community College May 2nd at 9:30 in the morning.

“The college civics tour is always fun for me and students, and it’s a great way to help get them more interesting in voting and being involved,” Reed said. “I really look forward to visiting campuses across the state.”

Reed will take part in campus activities and discussions with students to encourage the state’s youngest voters to participate in elections. Among the highlights:

• At 15 campuses, Reed will either host or play in a “Civics Jeopardy” game that tests students’ knowledge of government, history, vocabulary and geography.

• During the April 12 event at Tacoma Community College, students will wear Western clothing and mustache buttons that say “Voting Looks Good on You.”

• Reed will take part in a tree-planting ceremony during his April 17 visit to Wenatchee Valley College’s Omak branch.

• Reed will present awards to students at service recognition events at Washington State University (Pullman) and Northwest Indian College on April 18, and at Central Washington University on May 1.
