2021 Rogers Scholar Noah Carroll hosted his first-ever candidate forum at Wolfe County High School (WCHS) to give students an opportunity to learn more about the political process and address key issues that are important to young people. He invited all candidates for local, state, and district offices to attend the forum on March 3.

The event, co-sponsored by the WCHS Debate and Beta clubs, also included food and a silent auction.

“Many community leaders and other organizations helped to make the candidate forum a success. I worked closely with school administrators and teachers to help plan the event and menu. I also worked with local candidates and businesses to secure donated items that could be auctioned off at the event for fundraising. Many community leaders, elected officials, and first-time politicians were involved and helped make this event a success.”
