BHS Students Impress On Annual Student Government Day

Dr. Conti (right) presents BHS junior Maruf Khalifa with his certificate for participating in Student Government Day.

Today was one of the best days of the school year as we had our annual opportunity to show off how impressive our students are to a number of local officials and employees during Student Government Day.  Some students got to sit in the chairs of local officials and preside over a Board of Selectmen Meeting and a School Committee Meeting.  Other students got to shadow town employees and see first hand the hard work that goes into making Burlington such a great place to live.

Special thanks to Burlington Town Administrator Bob Mercier, his assistant Sandi Madigan, and BHS Social Studies Department Head Jeff Hoyt for their work in putting this great program together.
