Mayor Visits Weddington Hills

Mayor Visits Weddington Hills 12/18/2019


The third grade students at Weddington Hills Elementary School had a special visit from Mayor Bill Dusch and Councilwoman Jennifer Parsley last week. The mayor and councilwoman discussed their responsibilities as members of the City of Concord Government,  how the mayor and city council work together, how tax money is spent, and how citizens can make a difference. The visit was a great addition to the “How We Organize Ourselves” unit the students at Weddington Hills have been studying that explores the structure of a local government.


As an added bonus, members of the Concord Fire Department and Police Department were invited to share about their responsibilities and how their department uses their allotted tax money.  Students had the opportunity to interact with the fire truck, police cars, and the special guests.  A huge thank you to everyone involved for supporting students' learning!
