SABRE PRIDE: Congratulations to Lauren Boom for being selected as Sartell's Mayor for the Day!
Riverview Intermediate School 4th graders had the opportunity to write an essay in November about what they would do if they were mayor for a day.
The city council chose Lauren as the winner from 39 entries! Sartell Mayor Ryan Fitzthum visited Lauren's classroom on Friday to surprise her with announcement!
Mayor Fitzthum shared, "The innocence and positivity of our youth shined bright through the essays. Being grounded in respect for each other and respect for our community was evident in nearly every essay. This was a great reflection for me as, so often, we (as adults) get sidetracked by social influences which might not align with the principles of respecting our neighbors and our community."
As part of her official duties, Mayor Lauren Boom will attend a city council meeting!
