St. Philip's City Student Mayor Meets City of San Antonio Mayor

On June 26 in the City of San Antonio City Hall Complex, St. Philip’s College provided a field trip for the college’s 2014 KIDS’ CAMP MicroSociety student leadership to the City Council A Session meeting. See archival video at www.sanantonio.gov website 48:40–50:56 minutes.

The college’s students were publicly welcomed in council chambers by The Honorable Julián Castro, Mayor of San Antonio and U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development secretary nominee.

St. Philip’s College MicroSociety student mayor Sean Godley and St. Philip’s College MicroSociety student city manager Doreen Hansen introduced themselves to council members from the chamber’s public podium, and later met with Mayor Castro. MicroSociety students then wrote reflections on their field trip. The visit was coordinated through the staff of the District 2 City Council, and a video of the council’s welcome for the St. Philip’s College MicroSociety members is archived at the city’s web site.

“I shook his hand and said hi,” student mayor Godley recalled. “He was very nice and he was kind; he seemed trustworthy, like a teacher,” said Godley, who is also a student at Antioch Christian Academy.

“Hello Mayor Godley!” Mayor Castro said in welcome to the visitors. “We are proud of you and the effort you are making and the program you are in. We hope that in the years to come that you reach all your dreams. Keep going to school. Just know that you all can accomplish your dreams,” Mayor Castro concluded.

“During the visit, I learned people were able to speak their minds about their thoughts on the city”, Godley reflected. “During the meeting it was in order and very quiet. It taught me how to work during our meetings; it taught me to keep stuff in order. My job as mayor is to make sure everybody gets a job they like, so they have fun doing what they are doing. If I'm not there, they are prepared to take over, ready for whatever happens,” said Godley.

The MicroSociety camp experience immerses children in nine weeks of actively discovering and sustaining long-term solutions for the revitalization of San Antonio, a nationally recognized rising leader in innovation, education and community investment best practices. The students operate their own society and assume roles which range from mayor to banker.
