Board member talks civics with elementary school students
Ragan Freitag discusses voting process, elections at Joliet school
"This was a wonderful opportunity to encourage young people to get involved in their community and participate in civic groups like student council because their voices and choices absolutely matter," said Freitag. "One day we will look to them to run for city council, county board, and even President of the United States."
"The students were so inspired by Ragan's story and knowing they can make a difference with their vote," said Henschen.
