Students learn the importance of voting

November 4, 2002

Valdosta - They may be young, but some South Georgia fourth and fifth graders are already learning the importance of voting.

Students from VSU's Students in Free Enterprise Club are letting West Gordon Elementary students know just how much their votes matter. They even participated in a mock election, voting on whether or not to allow year-round school.

"We fought so hard for the right to vote, and we want them to know that it's a privilege we have to exercise," said Jermaine Pender, SIFE Member.

Students also received lessons in freedom and equality.
