CM Jenkins Visits Hiawatha Leadership Academy - Northrop

The Ward 8 Office would like to thank Natasha Villanueva, Operations Coordinator at Hiawatha Leadership Academy - Northrop for hosting a conversation between Council VP Jenkins and two very accomplished 4th graders. Council VP Jenkins spent the morning discussing civic engagement with two scholars. The conversation was videotaped and the scholars will produce a video for the school community. Our office was really excited to have an opportunity to spend time with bright young minds!
