City of Stanton Welcomes Local Students to City Hall For Fourth Annual Youth In Government Day
The City of Stanton is excited to welcome local students from Magnolia, Western, and Gilbert High Schools to City Hall for its fourth annual Youth in Government Day. The all-day learning event is scheduled for Thursday, March 23, 2017. During the event, students will have an opportunity to learn about each of the City’s departments through fun, hands-on activities and informative presentations.
Participating City departments include: Administration, Police Services, Fire Services, Community Services, Community Development, Finance, Public Works and Engineering. Approximately 100 students participated last year and enjoyed learning about how local government works.
As part of last year’s hands-on activities, students met one of the Police Department’s K9 officers; learned about the development and planning of Stanton Central Park; opened maintenance manholes and inspected a construction tractor. A simulated City Council Meeting taught the students how the City Council establishes community goals and policies as well as providing leadership and direction in the administration of City Departments and services.
This year’s event is anticipated to be another great learning experience with hands-on activities inspired by current City projects.
