On Monday, September 23rd, the Exploration Class of Elkhart Middle School had a Morton County experience, like no other. Forty-six students composed of 7th and 8th graders from EMS observed a Morton County Commissioners meeting, descriptions of duties and responsibilities of many Morton County Department leaders, and a tour of the Morton County Jail. The students studied city, county and state government prior to the field trip. Students looked at the Morton County website, investigated tax revenue of the county and how the funds are spent. Following the field trip the students discussed a reflection of the information acquired through the Morton County Commissioners meeting and the Jail tour. Many thanks goes to the adults who fostered this experience for the 7th & 8th Graders. The students and teachers appreciate all of the hard work and dedication that is given to Morton County.
