On Monday, October 23, the Byrd Center welcomed 80 high school students and faculty from Berkeley County Public Schools for a day-long workshop focusing on government and deliberate discourse. The students came from all four Berkeley County high schools: Martinsburg, Spring Mills, Hedgesville, and Musselman, and each are participants in their school’s Leadership Program . The workshop allowed students to learn from historical records as well as the opportunity to respond to current events in a group discussion.
