Woodland Park Celebrates Youth Month

Woodland Park Celebrates Youth Month

Woodland Park’s annual Youth Month kicked off with a visit from Mayor Keith Kazmark to Memorial School. He described the program and its similarities to running for real office. Students received descriptions of the jobs they could run for to be elected to by their peers.

“Participants get to learn about how every element of the town works,” Kazmark said, noting that he had served as a Youth Month councilman as a student.

Following the election day at school, the students selected for the positions had a number of opportunities to see their government in action.

Students enjoyed a tour of the town for the students included stops at Fire Company No. 2, the Department of Public Works, Board of Education building, municipal building, police department, Alfred Baumann Library and WP First Aid Squad.

They also ran a Mayor and Council meeting from the dais, a municipal court session and Board of Education meeting.
