Kid City Mayor and Council Elected!
Submitted By Fremont/Newark YMCA
Fifth grade students from Maloney Elementary School have been elected to serve as YMCA Kid City Mayor and City Council. "These students were elected by providing a winning essay as part of a writing assignment for Mrs. Snowden's class." Said David Hembree, executive director for the Fremont/Newark YMCA.
Winners received a complimentary week of YMCA Summer Day Camp, participated in the Fourth of July Parade and will preside over opening ceremonies at YMCA Kid City at the Fremont Festival of the Arts August 1st and 2nd.
The YMCA Kid City Mayor for the coming year is Miss Cynthia Chang, City Council members are Miss Sawsen Chaida - Vice Mayor and Mr. Moxit Shah City Council member.
The assignment was to write a business letter to address how the student would promote cultural harmony, build a strong community and nurture healthier lifestyles if they were the Mayor of Fremont.
"All of the entries were wonderfully insightful" said Hembree. "The winners were chosen for their unique perspective and emphasis on leadership, diversity, and creativity."
YMCA Kid City is part of the Fremont Festival of the Arts, in partnership with the festival hosts; the Fremont Chamber of Commerce. Kid City is a family friendly feature of the Festival of the Arts where children can have fun with hands on activities and enjoy themselves in a place just for kids.
