After touring the campus, the students listened to Judge White’s speech about his career path in law and the importance of finding role models. The Honorable Peter R. Palermo Program is a community partnership that involves regular visits by St. Thomas Law students to the Law Magnet Program at Miami Carol City Senior High School, overseen by attorney Asiah Wolfolk-Manning.
The law students teach topics ranging from constitutional law to U.S. government and history, and the inspiration for the program was Judge Palermo’s belief that tomorrow’s leaders should know about the United States Constitution, civics, and the law regardless of what profession they choose. Since its launch in September 2013, the law students have repeatedly visited Carol City High each semester.
Thanks for hosting Carol City Senior High -- and well done, Judge White!
