Corinth Elementary 5th Grader Cassidy Forehand became Mayor for a Day in Hickory Creek, Texas, on Tuesday, April 18. Mayor Lynn Clark selected Forehand in a random drawing of Lake Dallas ISD Leader in Me students in early April.
Cassidy toured the City Hall and Police department as well as meeting with the mayor, city manager and city council members prior to the council meeting. She also sat with the mayor and helped conduct the meeting by calling it to order with a special gavel engraved with her name, leading in the pledges and helping with agenda items and presentations.
“We had a lot of fun & Cassidy did a great job. This young lady is a leader!” Mayor Clark said.
