Students learn how it all works

GLASGOW — They started Tuesday with mock debates and a presentation by Glasgow’s mayor, and the rest of the agenda included visits with a circuit court judge, the county judge-executive and other county officials, the police and fire departments and jail.

It was all part of Youth Government Day, which allowed more than 100 high school students to interact with community decision makers and other leaders. The tour event included students from Barren County, Glasgow and Caverna public schools and Glasgow Christian Academy.

The day is sponsored by Barren County’s Promise, a local offshoot of America’s Promise, which aims to provide five promises to children: a healthy start, safe places, caring adults, effective education and opportunities to serve, said Marcus Kingrey, a member of the committee who helped plan the day.
