Judges will attend forum for students
Four local judges will be in attendance at noon today for the 2012 Judicial Forum at Dunedin Highland Middle School, 70 Patricia Ave. The forum, which originated in the 1990s, is designed to motivate at-risk middle and high school students. One of the program's goals is to introduce students to the workings of the justice system. Joining 6th Judicial Circuit Judge Michael Andrews will be Pinellas County Judge James Pierce, Pasco County Judge Debra Roberts and Circuit Judge Patrice Moore. Before the forum, the Youth Development Initiative will host a Teen Summit at 10 a.m. at the same site. For more information, call (727) 442-5550.
