Hilltop Elementary School third-grade students received a civics lesson when school district leaders, city leaders, township leaders and Mahoning County leaders gathered in the library during the school’s annual Civic Day May 20.

Judge Diane Vettori of Sebring County Court Number 3 in Mahoning County, Sergeant James Conrad of the Canfield Police Department, Judge Scott Hunter of Canfield County Court, Canfield Local Schools Superintendent Alex Geordan, Canfield Mayor Bernie Kosar, Sr., Canfield Township Trustee Marie Cartwright, Canfield Cardinal Joint Fire District Deputy Fire Chief Matt Rarick and Canfield Fire and Rescue member Robert Tieche, Jr., attended the event.

Each public official took their turn to explain to the students their job duties and responsibilities.

“Being the mayor of Canfield is the best job I have ever had,” Kosar told the students.

Judge Vettori provided the students a souvenir of their day by giving each students a red, white and blue flag bracelet.

At the end of their presentations, members of the panel also took several questions from the third-graders.
