Congressman Valadao Visit PhotosOn November 21, 2017, Congressman Valadao graciously took the time out of his busy schedule to visit John Muir Middle School. He was presented with the Mission Patch winners and the three group finalists for the Student Spaceflight Experiment Program (SSEP) Mission 12. The school has had a successful SSEP experiment design and proposal-writing phase.

Congressman David Valadao was born and raised in Hanford in the center of the agriculturally rich Twenty-First Congressional District. As a lifelong resident of the Central Valley, he has been active in agriculture and dairy industry groups as well as many local causes including Children’s Hospital Central California, 4-H, Future Farmers of America, and various Catholic charities.

We thank Congressman Valadao for his time! Please enjoy these photos from his visit.
