On Tuesday, January 31, our State Chair Joe Wolf and Director Dhibo Hussein testified in front of the House of Representative's Higher Education and Career Readiness Policy and Finance Committee. State Chair Wolf focused on introducing our organization and the financial struggles many Minnesota state university students have. Then, Director Hussein introduced herself and told her Metropolitan State University story, which began when her parents were first students there, long before she was Metro State student herself.
