With hopes of teaching students about the responsibilities of local government, The League of Women Voters welcomed more than 70 eighth-graders to Wilmette Junior High on Jan. 12, kicking off the seven-week Student Government and Leaders Program. 

Also attending were officials from the Wilmette Park District, Village of Wilmette, Wilmette Public Library, and representatives from districts 39 and 37 who all taught the students about the many ways in which they keep Wilmette running efficiently.
