Middle School – Civics In Action

As part of our Civics in Action series, each year our 7th-grade students have the privilege of hosting local and state leaders on the role they play in government.  The Duval Clerk of Courts, Jody Phillips, as part of the Civics In Action Series.   Students will take an active role in each session by asking pertinent questions of each representative. “When students are prepared and engaged for the political process, they are more likely to become civically involved,” said former state representative, Ander Crenshaw.  As part of this learning process current and former representatives were invited to speak to the students in a question-and-answer forum. Afterward, the students enjoyed meeting their new friends in person and taking “selfies”…and we believe the feelings were mutual from their reactions.  Kudos to their instructor, Mr. Higginbotham, for arranging these informative sessions for our students.
