Mayor of Mesa, John Giles, and Arizona 5th District congressman, Andy Biggs visited Noah Webster Schools on Tuesday, April 3rd to meet this charter school’s amazing 5th and 6th graders. In the morning, Mayor Giles met with the 6th grade Student Council to discuss the importance of continuing their path of steward leadership as they advance into Jr. High and High School. The mayor took the time to explain running for office was never his intention, but rather it came from his desire to help others and support his hometown. To the students who are not considering a future in student office, he suggested thinking of areas such as teaching, coaching, and volunteering as just a few of the other ways they can have leadership and engagement in their community. The mayor ended his conversation by reminding the students to never be afraid to fail and to be sure to listen to the advice of those around you.
In the afternoon, Congressman Biggs held an assembly with Noah Webster’s 5th grade students to discuss the history of our democratic process and how it all began with someone who had the enthusiasm to make a difference in their community. The congressman stressed the importance of remembering that with freedom comes responsibility. It is our responsibility as citizens to find ways to positively impact individuals and organizations to contribute to the common good of our community.
