(Congressman visits local schools)….Congressman Juan Vargas represents the entire California/Mexico border region.
Vargas recently visited the County. The Congressman delivered books to Dogwood Elementary in Heber. The books were donated from the Library of Congress. He also visited Brawley Union High School. The Congressman presented a 2015 Congressional Honor of America Award to Brawley Union High School Civics teacher Jose Flores. While at the school, Vargas spoke to students in the Civics classes of Flores and Victor Martinez. Vargas later said speaking to the students and answering their questions was a pleasure, giving a lot of joy and optimism.
