North Laurel High School’s freshman civics classes recently had the opportunity to hear from two of London’s local leaders. Mr. Garrison Burchell and his civics classes hosted a forum with Mayor Troy Rudder and Judge-Executive David Westerfield. This forum was a great opportunity to learn about how government effects the lives of all the citizens in Laurel County.

Prior to the visit, Mr. Burchell’s civics classes had written letters to the mayor simply hoping for a response. In these letters, students asked a variety of questions regarding state and local government. Mayor Rudder and Judge-Executive Westerfield were kind enough to come to school and answer these questions in person. Overall, it was a wonderful experience and it provided a great example of how schools and local government can work together to make our community a better place.
