Today some local 8th grade students  will get a first hand look at how government works.

The City of Augusta will host  forty students from Hornsby Elementary School as part of a program called,  “Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day”.

Nationally, the program was  observed April 23, but according to a spokesperson for the city of Augusta,  the decision to move the local observance to today was made because  students were testing on the earlier date.

Several city departments will take part in Thursday’s program, which is expected to start about 9:45 a.m.  

The students will take a break from their “work day” and have lunch with Augusta Mayor Hardie Davis.

In a press release, Mayor Davis said, “Augusta’s leaders and departments are excited to answer the call of the White House for My Brother’s Keeper Communities to expand the Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work program to youth who are typically unable to participate in this day.”
