Mayor, Council celebrate Student Government Day

On Wednesday, Feb. 26, Mayor Cahn welcomed 28 Cherry Hill high school students to Town Hall for Student Government Day.

For the last 20 years, Student Government Day has given students from Cherry Hill East and West a hands-on civics lesson and a firsthand look at how local government operates. Each group is assigned a topic that is relevant to the Township, and asked to study that issue, create an action plan, and then write a resolution to present to a student-run Township Council at a mock Council meeting in the evening. The five Council members are elected from among their peers when the students arrive at Town Hall in the morning.

The first group of presenters were tasked with planning a marquee event for the Township's Recreation Department that would appeal to residents of all ages, while the second group created a hypothetical Redevelopment Plan for a piece of land in Cherry Hill.

This year, we were fortunate to host two groups of brilliant and engaged young men and women who put a great deal of effort and thought into each of their projects. Mayor Cahn, our Council members and the Township professionals who worked with the students throughout the day were very impressed, and we want to congratulate all of this year's participants on a job well done.
