Perry County students learn at "County Government Day" | Community Spirit
PERRYVILLE, MO (KFVS) - What does it take to run a Heartland county?
Some local students got a firsthand lesson Monday.
Students from both St. Vincent and Perryville High School signed up to spend the day with different Perry County mentors for the day.
They called it "County Government Day."
Heartland News caught up with them at the American Legion where they learned about the American flag.
"I just didn't know all the work these people put in and do for our county," said Trenton Gremaud, a student at St. Vincent High School. "The time they take away from their day to make sure our county's needs are met."
The program is intended to promote good citizenship in the youth of the community .
