Metro Schools Student Named Student Mayor for a Day

Congratulations are in order! Nashville Classical Charter School student Eloise Poag was selected as the “Student Mayor for a Day” by Mayor Megan Barry as part of the Nashville Public Library‘s Summer Challenge.

Over the summer, Metro Schools students competed in the challenge by reading and completing a series of activities to help avoid the “summer slide.” Nashville Classical had the most students complete the challenge and received a visit from Mayor Barry to congratulate them on their accomplishment.

By random drawing, Eloise was selected to be the Mayor for the day and will spend the day at city hall with Mayor Barry. The school also won $300 from the Nashville Library Foundation to support multimedia technology.
