North Augusta City Council showed its appreciation for the city's youth during its March 20 meeting.

The annual Youth Appreciation Day, held in cooperation with the Optimist Club and North Augusta High School, pairs senior students with city officials, elected and appointed. The students spent time with the officials during the work day, then attended the council meeting, where they sat with their mentors.

Councilwoman Pat Carpenter, who works at North Augusta Elementary School, invited the student council to attend as her special guests and recognized each by calling their names and asking them to stand.

After the meeting, a reception was held in the Palmetto Terrace for the students and their parents.

Here's a list of the high school students and the officials they were paired with for Youth Appreciation Day:

Sarah Bigger, Mayor Lark Jones; Clare Koss, Councilman Jimmy Adams; Brice Smoker, Councilman Bob Brooks; Julia Maryniak, Councilwoman Pat Carpenter; Tatyana Edwards, Councilman Ken McDowell; Bryson Fulmer, Councilman Fletcher Dickert; Allison Cohen, Councilman David McGhee; Brian Schaade, City Administrator Todd Glover; and Abigail Elvira, City Attorney Kelly Zier.

Also, Destiny Matthews, Director of Finance and Support Services Cammie Hayes; Allison Hendrick, Interim Director of Planning and Development Charles Martin; Caroline Waldrop, Director of Parks Recreation and Tourism Richard Meyer; Alex Crawford, Director of Public Safety John Thomas; Kateryna Parkhomenko, Director of Engineering and Public Works Thomas Zeaser; and Mikayla Jenkins, Director of Public Services James Sutton.
