Brody Blume and Miyah Knetzger, third grade students from Lewis and Clark Elementary in Williston, were chosen as Mayor for a Day for the essays they submitted.
“One of my favorite events of the year is Mayor for a Day,” said Mayor Howard Klug.
At the Monday, May 13 Williston City Commission meeting, Klug said the students’ essays were “outstanding,” and brought them before the assembled commissioners to share their writings. The students were each given a certificate commemorating the achievement, as well as a gift basket full of North Dakota products and goodies. As with every year, the duo joined Klug as part of the Band Day Parade, held on Saturday, May 11.
