ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) Constance Lane Elementary School opened in September of this year. It is fully equipped with new learning tools. Today, students showed west around the building and chatted with him one-on-one. West hopes this is the first of many updated schools in Rockford.

"Also, I wanted the students to see someone who grew up in the Rockford school system who is now a State Representative. To tell them that they can do the same thing. I am looking forward to them doing the same thing or even better than I’m doing now."

Lane elementary is named after Constance Renick Lane, the district’s first black teacher who served as an educator for more than 30 years.
