New York State Model Senate Session Project Participants/Videos 2009

Hostos breaks its own 2008 record and sends eleven students to the 2009 New York State Model Senate!

Viola Burgess Viola Burgess (R) represented District 2 and sat in the seat of New York State Senator John J. Flanagan. Viola’s impassioned plea to common sense was one of the more boisterous presentations made at the 2009 Model Senate and it fired up many of the other model senators. Viola is an activist, a mother and a determined leader. As A member of the Hostos Student Leadership Academy’s Student Orientation Services Team, Viola led the way in recruiting students to take an active role in the Leadership Academy, Clubs and Organizations and the Student Government. It was her goal, as a student at Hostos, to be able to provide vital information to every student on any topic that might arise. Viola was a participant in the CUNY Ambassadors Program and the CUNY Corps Program. She graduated in June of this year and will continue her studies at Lehman College.
