Morgan Park Academy was pleased to once again host our friends and neighbors March 10 for the Ward’s annual breakfast for student leaders from local middle schools.

The chosen eighth-graders, including MPA students Kennedy Coats, Charles Hendon, Elizabeth Patel, and Rachel Sheppard, were the honored guests of Ald. Matt O’Shea, Illinois Sen. Bill Cunningham, and Illinois Rep. Fran Hurley. After breakfast, the students worked in groups to debate several bills currently in the state legislature and presented their positions to family, friends, and teachers in attendance.
