Geauga County Judge Presents Ohio Flag to CMS
The Cardinal Local School District was honored to have Geauga County Juvenile Court Judge Timothy Grendell present an Ohio flag to Cardinal Middle School on Thursday, January 12, 2017. Judge Grendell came to the middle school and spoke to students in 5th grade. Students shared their rather impressive knowledge of Ohio State flag facts and Ohio history with the judge and his staff. The judge also took time to talk about Ohio history, juvenile court processes, and answer student questions about his career, his cases, and his height (6’7″ for anyone who is wondering.) He also presented the school with a certificate showing the flag he gave flew over the Ohio Statehouse in Columbus on December 5, 2016.
We appreciate the time he took with our students, thank you Judge Grendell.
