This past November, Democracy & Me hosted 40 students from two Cincinnati Public Schools: Roselawn Condon and Academy of Multilingual Immersion Studies. The students participated in a day filled with activity beginning at Cincinnati City Hall. They toured City Hall and participated in a mock council meeting followed by a Q&A with council member Liz Keating. The students also had the opportunity to meet Vice Mayor Jan-Michele Kearney and council member Scotty Johnson.
Next, the group visited the Cincinnati Public Radio studios, where lunch was served during the Q&A discussion with WVXU Reporters Zach Carreon and Becca Costello. The students participated in a lively discussion on journalism and storytelling and ended the day with a tour of the studios. Mrs. Kelley Bagayoko, Principal of AMIS, said she was so thankful for this opportunity and hopes we can build a lasting partnership between Democracy & Me and her school.
Here are a few thank you notes our staff received after the field trip:
