Colorado Sen. Jean White, left, R-Hayden, gives her card to Kinlie Brennise during her visit to Moffat County School District schools in October 2011 as superintendent Joe Petrone looks on. Kinlie helped give White a tour of the school and showed an interest in the political process, said White, who nominated Kinlie to participate in the second annual Girls With Goals Day.

Kinlie Brennise may not have known it at the time, but she left a lasting impression on Colorado Sen. Jean White. Brennise helped guide the first-term senator through East Elementary School in October 2011 during White’s tour of Moffat County School District schools. Brennise, a fifth-grader at East Elementary, seemed “very interested in the political process,” White said. Now, White, R-Hayden, is returning the favor. In March, she’ll be the one showing Kinlie around only this time they’ll be in the Colorado state capitol where the 10-year-old will get a taste of what life is like on the senate floor.
