Students at board meeting
As part of the 66th annual boys and girls County Day, high school students from the area made their way to the Faribault County Courthouse for an educational field trip on Tuesday, May 1.
The trip included a historical tour of the building, which was conducted by county recorder Sherry Asmus. The students also had an opportunity to sit in on a portion of the regular County Board meeting. Each commissioner greeted the young adults and also explained their primary responsibilities of representing the county.
A tour of the law enforcement center, and a trip to the Ag Center with visits to the veterans service, driver’s license and extension offices were a part of the morning activities.
At lunch, students gathered at the Blue Earth American Legion where they were greeted by Human Services Children and Family supervisor Brenda Lubenow, county attorney Kathryn Karjala-Curtis and county engineer Mark Daly. Each county professional discussed their primary job responsibilities and also fielded questions from student audience members.
In the afternoon, the students went back to the courthouse and briefly visited the assessor, recorder, auditor and treasurers offices, as well as another stop in with the county commissioners.
