p1040968At TMA, students are continuously give the opportunity to be active citizens and help put democracy in action. On Election Day, 46 Thurgood Marshall Academy seniors were placed at different voting locations to be poll workers. Prior to becoming poll workers, students spent 2.5 hours in a training learning how elections are conducted and received hands on experience on how to provide assistance to voters at the polls. This experience allowed our students to be exposed and gain a lifelong appreciation for the democratic process.
