Municipal Court Justice Visits Grade 3 Students

Grade 3 students had a unique opportunity to meet Judge Jon Oldham of the Akron Municipal Court on December 10 through a new community outreach program called "Have Gavel, Will Travel."
During his 45-minute visit with the children, Judge Oldham explained the court system, described what it takes to become a judge, and stressed the importance of making good decisions in life. He also fielded questions and let the students take turns banging a gavel. It was a terrific experience overall for the class and perhaps an inspiring one for any future justices in the room!

A reporter from the Akron Beacon Journal also attended the visit by Judge Oldham. Click here to read the article.
