Watson makes plans for Virginia MGA

Participation in Virginia’s Model General Assembly has long been an important at Fuqua School. This year’s MGA lieutenant governor, Fuqua School senior Thomas Watson, has been working diligently in preparation for this event scheduled to take place in April. 

Watson headed to Richmond and the Capitol Jan. 19-20 to advocate on behalf of MGA.  The first day he attended a reception hosted by Gov. and Mrs. Terry McAuliffe, as well as Mrs. Lindsey Watson, assistant to Mrs. McAuliffe and a Fuqua School graduate.  Watson also enjoyed spending time with Monty Mason ‘85, son of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Mason of Farmville, who serves in the Virginia House of Delegates representing the 93rd District. 

The next day, Watson and other MGA officers gave a presentation about the MGA to the House pages; the MGA officers were introduced on the House and Senate floors at noon.  As MGA lieutenant governor, Watson made the most of a personal interview with Virginia’s Lt. Gov. Ralph Northam, seeking advice for how best to handle his responsibilities when MGA convenes in April.
