With a tinge of sadness, but a good deal of pride in her voice, local attorney Lynn Peterson gave the opening remarks at a celebration of outgoing senior members of the Blount County Youth Court program.
“Tonight is all about thanking our jurors,” she said Thursday. “We have so many young people who have given so much to this community. And of these six seniors, all of them have been here with the youth court since day one. So tonight is a little bittersweet, saying goodbye to them.”
