Fourth-grade students who entered the Maryland Municipal League's "If I Were Mayor" essay contest read their blueprint plans for College Park at Tuesday night's mayor and council meeting.
Among the group honored were school-wide winners, statewide semi-finalists and Ella Lannon. Her essay highlighted improvements that she’d like to see in College Park—new environmental programs, recreational facilities, and crime and pedestrian safety measures. She was recently honored at a ceremony in Annapolis, along with the other state winners.
