Hermon High students get close up look at court

HERMON, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Hermon High students were all ears this morning as Maine's Supreme Court paid a visit to their auditorium. The court conducted real hearings in front of the student audience.

Hearings covered topics such as OUI and drug charges. The enrichment program is designed to help students see what they learn in school practiced in real life.

Students were captivated by the court, listening silently and then eagerly asking questions to the attorneys.

"I was very surprised with the amount of kids that were very involved," said Bailey Bryant, a senior at Hermon High. "Usually when we have events like this or anything like this at all, there's not a whole lot of talk."

Marissa Cox, another senior, agreed. "It was just very interesting. It was something that not everybody gets to see, and that's kind of cool that we got to see it."

The court will resume tomorrow at Mount Blue High School in Farmington.
