Savannah Law School hosted a panel, “Civics is a Verb”, Wednesday night.

The free event gave young residents the chance to ask city leaders questions about how to be involved in the community.

The six people panel included Alderman Van Johnson, Chatham County Sheriff John Wilcher and Chief Recorders Court Judge Tammy Stokes.

"It's important that these individuals talk to the community because they've had a lot of engagement in trying to promote the community process. They know exactly where to start in how we can help promote the start of civic engagement,” said Savannah Law School Democrats President Destinee Andrews.

Rounding out Wednesday’s panel, Chatham County School Board Chair Jolene Byrne, Probate Judge-elect Tom Bordeaux and Dianne McLeod, chief of the Juvenile Division for the Chatham County District Attorney's Office.
