Hermon students have big changes in mind

Students at Hermon High School made presentations last Friday on issues they found important to them. The presentations were made in front of a panel of 'celebrity' judges, as well as Congressman Mike Michaud, who was invited to the event as a guest. The presentations were part of Project Citizen, a program that helps its participants learn about public policy. 

The students looked at issues that included bullying and school lunches and researched different methods to resolve them. They chose what alternative they thought was the most beneficial, then looked at how they would set the program in place. The group of students who looked at school lunches proposed a student garden, arguing that it would provide them with community service hours. The group who researched school bullying came up with the idea for a poster. The poster would inform students what bullying was, and state what to do if they thought they were a victim.
