Eagle Academy Takes Local Government Tour
Montgomery County Eagle Academy elementary school students had the chance to learn about local government through hands-on experience as the group traveled to the Montgomery County Courthouse, Montgomery County Sheriff’s Department, and Montgomery County Tax Commissioner’s Office.
This group of students is comprised of 1st-5th grade gifted and high achieving students who have been discussing government, rules and laws.
During their field trip, students were able to tour the facilities and gain a greater understanding for what each elected official does. They were also able to review artifacts from Montgomery County’s past within the display cases in the Courthouse. “We are always open to the children of our community, and look forward to their visits,” Sheriff Doug Maybin explained. Clerk of Superior Court Tammy Foskey, Probate Judge Rubie Nell Sanders, Magistrate Judge Ashley Thornton, and Tax Commissioner Loretta Lane shared similar sentiments, all explaining they enjoy being able to work with the students within the community.
