N-CHS welcomed North Carolina Representative Patrick McHenry to its campus this week. Mr. McHenry took a tour of the campus, led by student body representatives from Mr. Hardy’s and Mr. Echerd’s Civics and Economics classes. He also spoke to students about some of the challenges and rewards of working in politics. Mr. McHenry emphasized, “It is OK to fail as long as you pick yourself back up and learn from your choices. We improve by learning from past choices.”
Mr. McHenry is the U.S. Representative for North Carolina’s 10th congressional district. Patrick McHenry is serving his sixth term in the United States Congress. Congressman McHenry’s district comprises seven counties in western North Carolina, from the suburbs of Charlotte to Asheville in the Blue Ridge Mountains.
