Over 30 Butler High School government students participated in the 2018 Youth in Government Day. Each student had an opportunity to learn from a local government leader. Students paired up with leaders from the City of Vandalia, Butler Township, and the Vandalia-Butler Board of Education.
All participating students now have a better understanding of how local government operates. This year, nine students learned from leaders from the Board of Education.
