Shadow a local government official and gain valuable experience in how the city works.

Chief C.W. Durham, of the Marietta Fire Department says the students are the future of the city and the firehouse has a good time showing them what they do in their daily jobs.

“Student Government Day is an excellent way for them to see how things work in the real world,” he says. “It gives them a firm grasp on how different jobs are affected by other people throughout the city so they can see how different departments interact, they can see what a normal workday consists of.”

According to Durham, it also gives them a possible eye into the future and a chance to steer them in the direction of what they might be interested in as a career.
