Members of the Adams Elementary School Student Council recently visited the County Administration Center and met with Board of Supervisors Chairman Ron Roberts to see how similar the county government is to their own on-campus panel and share their thoughts for San Diego's future.

While there, the students lead the pledge of allegiance during a Board of Supervisors meeting. In attendance were the the fifth-grade president, fourth grade vice-president and secretary, and third-grade fire marshal.

"The student council really enjoyed this experience," said Adams Principal Derek Muchison, "and maybe in 25 years from now they will be inviting young students to see the work that they will be doing at a County Board of Supervisors meeting."
