Judge Lesie C. Abernathy-Maddox

Civics Day with Judge Leslie Abernathy-Maddox

Last month, Forsyth County State Court Judge Leslie Abernathy-Maddox invited Matt Elementary School’s 3rd grade class to her courtroom for Civics Day. Because of the size of the class, the children were split into two groups. The first group met with Judge Abernathy-Maddox and she spoke to them about the judicial branch and its role in government. The students then participated in a mock trial to decide which of their teachers was “the best teacher.” The other group met with the Clerk of Court and Sherriff, who explained the duties of their respective offices.
