On November 9, six Newcomerstown Middle School 7th grade students visited the Newcomerstown Mayor's office.
They learned about local government careers, including careers in fiscal operations, streets and cemeteries, water and sewer, and how the mayor coordinates the departments.
They also learned about the training and education needed for those careers They learned about the village's "no drugs in the workplace policy," and received a tour of the municipal building.
They were asked to create a 5-year plan for Newcomerstown, including changes and improvements they'd like to see.
In groups of two, the students then presented their solutions to Mayor, Pat Cadle and Fiscal Officer, Lisa Stiteler.
The six students involved in this shadowing day were Julie Ostrow, Jacie Tedrow, Olivia Valdez, Chance Warren, Gabby Weaver and Brandon Weber.
