The Special Education class at JHHS took a field trip on Monday, September 26th, to the Jackson Parish Courthouse and the voting machine warehouse to learn about their rights and responsibilities as citizens and how to vote.
Enjoying the outing was Rose Broadway (para), Boniecia Murray (para), Kaylin Huckaby, Emma Lee, Keziah Thompson, Jessica Broshears, Grace Lee, Rena Daigre, Isaiah Williams, Timeion Wilson, Tamya Bratcher. The group was chaperoned Emily Carpenter (teacher), Karie Potts (adapted PE teacher) and bus driver, Allie Miles.
Special thanks go to Judge Rick Warren and Jackson Parish Clerk of Court, Laura Culpepper for taking time out of their busy schedule to help make the trip a great experience. Judge Warren provided a tour of the Courtroom, gave the students the opportunity to sit in a jury box and answered questions. Clerk Culpepper then took the group on a tour of the voting machine warehouse, allowed everyone to cast their ballot in a voting booth in a faux election scenario!
