A group of Charlottesville fourth-grade students took a field trip Tuesday to meet with city leaders.

Twenty-one students from Burnley-Moran Elementary School's Bobcat Leadership Club walked to City Hall to learn about leadership at a larger level.

They sat down with Charlottesville Vice Mayor Kristin Szakos and Assistant City Manager David Ellis to hear about how the city is run.

Two 10-year-old in the group say these hands-on lessons are valuable.

"It's nice to know how to be a leader and it's good for the community," said Chloe Romberger.

"It's good to help your community and places around you," said Destynee Spruill.

The students take a field trip like this every other week. They also focus on leadership at school and in the community through events like spirit days, the school talent show, and cleaning up trash along the Rivanna River.
