U.S. Senate candidate Jeff Sessions was back in Tuscaloosa County Tuesday, visiting students, faculty and staff at Brookwood High School.

Sessions dropped in on Capri Day’s mass media class, where WVUA 23’s Chelsea Barton was working with students on their latest video projects for Brookwood’s student news program Panther Talk.

Sessions said he’s impressed with the programs at Brookwood and how they’re training the future workforce. He even gave some words of wisdom to students.

“You go to work and work hard from the moment you arrive until your day is over,” Sessions said. “And you’ll do well in whatever you do. Avoid being a critic or a complainer or whiner and be positive and help everybody be successful, and you’ll be successful too.”

Sessions is hoping to reclaim the senate seat he held from 1997 to 2017. He voluntarily gave it up to become U.S. attorney general under President Donald Trump, but resigned from that position in November 2018.
