Pennsylvania House of Representatives member Chris Quinn (R, 168th Legislative District) recently visited the Glen Mills Schools the week prior to the election.
Speaking to a group of Glen Mills students and staff members, Representative Quinn encouraged the young men at the school to take advantage of their opportunity.
“I think everybody deserves a second chance,” Representative Quinn said.
Representative Quinn was impressed with the Glen Mills School and its student body.
“I was blown away when I first stepped foot on campus,” he said to the students. “Every student I have met has been polite and has looked me in the eye...This is a great opportunity to turn your lives around.”
“Representative Quinn is a great friend of the Glen Mills Schools,” Dr. Randy Ireson, the Executive Director of the Glen Mills Schools, said. “He has always reached out to help Glen Mills.”
The Delaware County (Pa) native was re-elected the following week.
