St. Louis County Executive Charlie A. Dooley will deliver the welcoming address and take questions at this year’s Missouri Youth Engaged in Local Government, or MY LOGO, program on May 13 at 9:00 a.m. at the Hazelwood School District Learning Center, 15955 New Halls Ferry Road, in the multi-purpose room.
MY LOGO is designed to teach Missouri middle school students about local government and get them involved in issues that affect them, their families and their communities. For the past several weeks, Hazelwood middle school students have been learning about local government in the classroom and will come together at the Hazelwood Learning Center to share what they’ve researched and learned.
The Projects Fair will be held at the Hazelwood Learning Center and will begin with breakfast at 8:30 a.m. The program begins at 9:00 a.m. with introductions, and at 9:15 a.m. The Honorable Charlie A. Dooley, St. Louis County Executive, will deliver the welcoming address to the students. More than 110 students are expected to attend the MY LOGO Projects Fair.
Dooley will speak to District middle school students from the Students Activities in Investigative Learning, or SAIL classes as well as to visiting students from Saeger Middle School in the Francis Howell School District.
