Erin Wachholz is a senior, majoring in elementary education, and minoring in learning disabilities.

She says meeting Doyle was a real thrill. "I called my parents and was like, 'Guess what? I'm going to meet the first lady of Wisconsin,'" Wachholz says. "I just think it's a great experience, especially to have one-on-one, talk to her with just the few of us that was here."

Doyle, a former teacher herself, jotted down notes as the students told her of programs they do to reach out to children.

"I was so encouraged as I listened around the table with the dedication to service on the part of these students," says Doyle. "So many, many students have been involved in some very fascinating projects."

And Erin says those programs sure pay off. "I think the more activities you have, and the different experiences and different classrooms really show you all the different students that are out there, and that you can teach how you believe is the correct way, and see all the students grow."

Doyle says she's going to take her notes with her back to Madison and try to get more schools around the state to follow Point's lead.
