It’s possible the future town, county, city or state government officials are roaming the hallways of Liberty High School, and a handful of them are more than prepared after spending time with local town and county legislators.
With Election Day just a few days away, candidates for the Sullivan County Legislature and Liberty Town Council took a special trip to Liberty High School to share their personal stories with students, encourage them to make the most of their education, make good decisions and get involved.
Liberty High School seniors attended a special presentation given by the candidates for the Sullivan County Legislature and Liberty Town Council. There, they had the opportunity to see things from the perspective of local government and even offered their own suggestions on ways to help Liberty and Sullivan County grow and thrive.
Eighty seniors met with eight candidates and took part in a round-table discussion and workshop to identify the strengths and weaknesses of the town of Liberty, as well as the opportunities and threats that face the area. Often referred to as a SWOT analysis, the objective of the workshop was to identify the strengths, weakness, opportunities and threats of the town. Students took turns sharing their ideas and visions for making a difference in Liberty.
