Gifted students from Western and Piketon recently completed a unit of study on the judicial system including types of trials, and duties associated with the court, and today they traveled to Chillicothe and Columbus to see how our judicial system works in person! They began the day at the Ross County Probate and Juvenile Court with Judge Benson. From there they traveled to the Ohio Supreme Court for a tour and mock trial and then to the State House for a tour. What a wonderful experience for these gifted students!
