Judges at Work in Schools- Holland Middle School

Last month, I had the privilege to speak with a group of about 100 students at Holland Middle School.  We discussed the judicial branch of government, as well as, the role of judges in the courtroom.  I also had the opportunity to emphasize the importance of staying in school and obtaining a college degree.  I  was able to relay the idea of the relationship between education and achieving goals in our society.  I am most proud of the students' commitment to education, desire to achieve, and appreciation for service.  I especially enjoyed the question and answer session!!   Thank you to the great students and educators of Holland Middle School for the opportunity to speak.

Judges at Work in Schools -- Law Elementary

Today I had the honor and privilege of attending Law Elementary's Career Day.   I spoke to 9 classes about what it takes to become a judge, and what it is that we do at the Courthouse.  The students were a joy to speak to, and they were extremely knowledgeable about a number of topics.  We read Marshall the Courthouse Mouse and discussed the Constitution and the branches of government.  The goal for me was to educate children on the role of a judge, and to get them excited about going to college and graduate school.   I am most pleased to let all the students know that there are others in the community that want to see them succeed in accomplishing all of their dreams in life!
