Students learn about city government

December 7, 2004

Nashville - Some South Georgia students are learning to be city leaders.

First graders from Berrien Primary School enjoyed milk and cookies with the mayor Tuesday morning. Each wrote a short speech on what they would do if they were mayor, and some even got a chance to preside in council chambers.

"We're giving them an opportunity to express themselves before they can vote and hopefully they'll all become great voters some day and they will help us keep our city clean," said Mayor Connie Perry.

Students will have milk and cookies with Berrien County commissioners on Friday and learn more about their jobs.
