A high-profile visitor at Chief Sealth International High School today, on the last day of school before the three-day Veterans Day weekend: State Supreme Court Justice Steven González. In our short video clip, he introduces himself to Sealth 9th graders, whose visit was scheduled as part of their studies of free speech, according to teacher Luke Azinger – he arranged the visit along with fellow Language Arts teacher Heather Griffin:

Justice González was appointed to the Supreme Court this past January, and was unopposed on last week’s ballot after winning more than 50 percent of the vote in the August primary.

  1. I have such admiration for Judge Gonzalez and know what a huge impact he has on these young people. It is a great honor to have someone of his empathy and wisdom serving the people of WA. Think what it must be like to be a high school student seeing a real life judge in person who speaks to them with such respect!

  2. I had the pleasure of serving as a juror in his courtroom just over a year ago. He had Supreme Court Justice written all over him. A class act.

  3. It was an honor to speak to the students. They are studying the 1st Amendment in depth. Their thoughtful questions are a credit to their hard work and to the work of the teachers, parents and administrators. Thank you.
