At their meeting on March 12, the school board approved a Memorandum of Understanding with the Goochland Electoral Board to offer civics lessons to GHS Seniors as part of our 12th Grade Government classes. The electoral board members will share the electoral process and some of our Seniors will be chosen as sworn officers at local polling places. Thank you so much to Mrs. Yearout-Patton for helping draft the MOU and to both boards for agreeing to this excellent real-life experience for our students!
In other Government news, Kerri Anderson, a Senior at GHS, just learned that she has made it to the final round for the Sorensen Institute for Political Leadership’s High School Leader Program. This program is a prestigious opportunity for high school students to learn about state and local government and politics.
