Center School Sightings - Episode 11 - Judge McDonough

What a special treat the fourth and fifth graders had in listening to Judge McDonough!  Father of fifth grader, Bobby, Judge McDonough visited as part of National Judicial Outreach week.  As a Justice of the Superior Court and quite a historian, he explained the Boston Massacre (it started with a snowball fight!) and John Adams's role as counselor for the defense in the most interesting way.   He also taught the children about Lady Justice, the Rule of Law, bias and impartiality.  

Our American jury system was first put into practice in Massachusetts - how fortunate we are to be its citizens.  The students were fascinated and a few of them became judges themselves!  Thank you Judge McDonough!
