Bonlee, NC - The mayor of Siler City, Charles Johnson, visited students in Jennifer Kennedy's and Katie Palmer's second and third grade classes at Bonlee School on Thursday, September 16.

Students had been learning about the important responsibilities of a mayor. Johnson told them why he wanted to become mayor, the process he went through to be elected, and ways he is working to help Siler City grow. He encouraged the students to work hard in school so they can achieve their goals when they grow up. He even gave them tips on what to do if they would someday like to become a mayor.

As third grader Elizabeth Phillips said, "He helps keep our community safe and wants to help our community grow."

Another third grader, Matthew Riggs stated, "I enjoyed learning about what the mayor does."

Palmer noted that all the students learned a great deal of information and enjoyed the mayor's visit.
