WASHINGTON, DC - This afternoon, Congressman Steny H. Hoyer (MD-05) met with incoming University of Maryland Student Government Association President Ireland Lesley and Director of Government Advocacy Samay Kindra.
"I enjoyed meeting with President Lesley and Director Kindra this afternoon to discuss how Congress is working to address the rising cost of higher education," said Congressman Hoyer. "I am working closely with Chair of the Education and Labor Committee Bobby Scott and members of the committee on the reauthorization of the Higher Education Act, which we want to strengthen to ensure more students can afford to pursue and complete higher education. It's critically important that Congress take action to ensure more students have access to affordable, quality education and that students feel safe on their campuses."
"I was proud to serve as Vice President of the Student Government Association at the University of Maryland, and I know how hard the SGA works to represent their peers," continued Congressman Hoyer. "I thank President Lesley and Director Kindra for their commitment to ensuring that the voices of their fellow students are heard. I look forward to continuing to work with the Student Government Association and students at the University to address the issues most important to them."
