John Kerry visits CSUS

John Kerry made an un-announced visit to campus today, March 29, meeting with CSUS President Alexander Gonzalez and about 400 elementary school kids who were on campus for the annual Cesar Chavez Youth Forum.

The children sang songs and told about lessons they had learned from Chavez’ life. Kerry read them a book about Chavez called Harvesting Hope, and then asked them questions about their lives.

Kerry made the half-hour stop between scheduled events. He was headed next to a fundraising lunch downtown.

Kerry’s visit was covered by about a dozen national pool reporters who travel with him, as well as a reporter and photographer from the CSUS student newspaper, the State Hornet.

The annual Cesar Chavez Youth Forum was sponsored by the University’s bilingual/multicultural education department and the United Farm Workers.
