On Oct. 7, Addison Trail world language teacher Judie Vitiritti-Lynch participated in the College Board’s Federal AP Week.

The focus of that event was to meet with legislators to discuss the importance of Advanced Placement (AP)/college-level courses, as well as government funding to support low-income students enrolling in those classes. During the three-day event (which took place virtually because of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic), 24 teachers, 12 alumni and 11 students from throughout the U.S. joined together to advocate during 22 legislative meetings. Vitiritti-Lynch met with U.S. Senators Tina Smith (Minn.) and Dick Durbin (Ill.).

Vitiritti-Lynch is the Midwest Advocate Lead through the AP Advocates program and also was the first recipient of the Midwest Award for Leadership in the Teaching of the Italian Language and Culture in November 2016.
