Eighth grade students met with County Executive and WFS alum Matt Meyer '90 to wrap up their recent unit on U.S. regions and the City of Wilmington.
Matt spoke to students about the role he plays and the function of county government in our state. He also presented the students with a case study about a local environmental issue, the expansion of the Minquadale Landfill, that demonstrated the tension between business and public health and safety issues.
