Duval Clerk of Courts Visits Providence
Our 7th-grade students had the privilege of hearing from the Duval Clerk of Courts, Jody Phillips, as part of the Civics In Action Series. Students will be busy over the next few weeks hosting local, state, and national government representatives. “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 from their reactions, we believe the feelings were mutual. Kudos to their instructor, Mr. Higginbotham, for arranging these informative sessions for our students.
