05152018 Manar Williams NelsonSPRINGFIELD -— State Senator Andy Manar (D-Bunker Hill) welcomed two central Illinois high school students to the Capitol last week as his senators for the day.

Meggan Williams, a junior at Staunton High School, and Noah Nelson, a senior at Taylorville High School, joined Manar in Springfield on Tuesday, May 15.

Williams is the daughter of Jeff and Tammy Williams. She is involved in dance and volleyball. While at the Capitol, she toured the building, accompanied Manar to committee hearings and joined him on the Senate floor for a busy afternoon of debate and votes on key pieces of legislation.

Noah Nelson is the son of Ed and Teresa Nelson. His interest in politics, journalism and current events led him to accept an invitation to attend the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign in the fall, where he plans to study political science. Nelson also joined Manar on the Senate floor.
