Armondo will also be headed to the state conference in Charleston next month.

“One day after school, my mom told me that I got invited to this thing, and I was reading it and my homeroom teacher nominated me for it, and that’s sorta how I found out,” said Armondo.

Armondo also said he is excited about sightseeing in Washington, D.C., as he has never been there before.
