Kewaunee County students get a taste of government

High school students from Kewaunee, Algoma, and Luxemburg got a chance to walk in the shoes of a county employee Wednesday as a part of the annual youth government day. In the morning students toured Kewaunee County’s courthouse, sheriff’s department, jail museum, and administration center before participating in a mock trial in the afternoon. Kewaunee junior Vanessa Guillen says she wanted to participate because she wanted to learn more about how the whole county judicial system works.

Kewaunee County Corporation Counsel Jeffrey Wisnicky hopes the students realize they are becoming adults soon and the stuff they do on a daily basis matters.

Wednesday marked the 55th year of the youth government day, which is sponsored by three local American Legion Posts.
