PEEKSKILL, N.Y. -- Peekskill pride was on full display when Sen. Terrence Murphy toured the Peekskill City School District.
Senator Murphy met with Dr. David Fine, Superintendent of Schools, and toured Woodside Elementary, Peekskill High School and the Summit Academy at Uriah Hill. Students shared their classroom experiences with the Senator, who said he was impressed with their devotion to self-improvement.
"The Peekskill City School District more than lives up to its motto of 'A system focused on every student every day,'" said Senator Murphy.
