City of Saginaw MI -
Student Government Day
March 13, 2013 SAGINAW, MI – The City of Saginaw’s Student Government Day is on Monday, March 18, 2013. Student Government Day allows high school students an opportunity to learn about local governmental operations by spending the day with elected officials and City staff. This annual event is co-sponsored by the American Legion Post No. 22.
Students will begin the day with a “mock” City Council meeting enacted by the students, followed by tours of various City departments, interactive presentations on topics such as the Public Works Department’s “Green” Initiative, the Police Department’s K-9 Unit, the Fire Department’s thermal imager, and other important aspects of local government. Following these tours and presentations, students will take their lunch at American Legion Post No. 22, located at 2200 S. Niagara Street. After lunch, students will attend a City Council meeting at 12:00 noon in the Council Chambers.
City staff will host the students at different times during their tour of the facilities. The students will be transported from City Hall to the American Legion Post via a school bus. The American Legion Post 22 Honor Guard, Commander, Chaplain, and other officers will participate in the opening ceremonies at the 12:00 noon City Council meeting.
We are very excited about being able to offer the students an opportunity to actively participate and play a role in a “mock” City Council meeting earlier in the day, and then view the actual, formal meeting later in the day, commented Debbie Buck, Public Information Office. “This year’s Student Government Day will incorporate regular favorites like the K-9 unit, and some new demos like the thermal imager used by the Fire Department. We are really looking forward to having the students with us for the day.”
