Students For Ethical Governance Day

Last month, local elected and government leaders brought their message of civil service and ethics to students at Lake Worth Community High School.

Organized by District School Board member Erica Whitfield and Judge Samantha Feuer, the fourth Annual Ethical Governance Day afforded over 150 students the opportunity to speak to local leaders about their career paths, current events, jury service, and voting, among other topics.

These events are held at different high schools around the County to encourage students to participate in their local government and to learn the importance of ethics and the law.

“The events always have their own personality, but the basic goal is to bring in a panel of people who work in a variety of governmental areas closer to the students of Palm Beach County,” Whitfield said, who also served as the event moderator.

Thank you to the following panelists for participating in the event:

• Erica Whitfield - District School Board Member

• Samantha Schosberg Feuer - Circuit Court Judge, Palm Beach County
