Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today Congressman Robert Aderholt (AL-04) released a statement congratulating schools in the 4th District who are competing in the Capitol Hill Challenge, a stock market education program.

“I want to congratulate students from Brookwood and Hanceville High Schools on their participation in the Capitol Hill Challenge. This program fosters an understanding of the stock market and the American economy.

“Joey House, the advisor to students at Hanceville competing in the program, said that ‘We are a small, rural school in Cullman County, and few of my students' parents invest in the stock market. This is new stuff for them, but I'm trying to help them see that investing could be a way of changing their family for generations.’

“I couldn’t agree more with Mr. House. I hope that once this competition is completed that they can use the skills they’ve learned and apply them to their future lives and careers. I wish the students from Brookwood and Hanceville all the best in this competition.”

More information is available at the Capitol Hill Challenge website here.

In Washington Congressman Aderholt serves as Chairman of the Subcommittee on Agriculture, Rural Development, Food and Drug Administration, and Related Agencies for the powerful House Appropriations Committee; he is also a member of the Committee’s Defense Subcommittee, the Committee’s Commerce, Justice, and Science Subcommittee, and the Helsinki Commission.
