“It’s important that leaders in our community get out and personally encourage kids to work hard and excel in school. I’m grateful for the opportunity to visit two schools who are doing great work in our city, and I’m looking forward to talking with students, faculty, and administration tomorrow morning.”

Rep. Bowen also congratulated Rufus King on being nationally recognized for its hard work. At the end of the 2014-15 school year, The Washington Post named Rufus King High School, located in Bowen’s district, one of the most challenging high schools in the Midwest.

“Wisconsin has some of the hardest working teachers in the nation, and I’m proud to have one of our most exemplary schools located right here in the 10th Assembly District. This honor is a testament to the dedication of kids, parents, and teachers in our city. I challenge students throughout Milwaukee and Wisconsin to continue going above and beyond to achieve excellence in the new school year.”
