HAGERSTOWN, MD (October 22, 2019) – Washington County Government hosted its inaugural Student Government Day at the Administration Building in downtown Hagerstown. Six students were selected to represent their Washington County public high school by spending the day experiencing and learning about local government in Washington County, Maryland. Students received an introduction from County divisions and departments, attended the Board of County Commissioners meeting, had lunch with the County Commissioners, Delegate William Wivell, and Delegate Paul Corderman, and discussed opportunities for involvement in the community.
