Patrick Lavoie, a fifth-grade student at James Faulkner Elementary School in Stoddard, was sworn in as a New Hampshire Kid Executive Councilor at the State House on Friday.

Patrick was a finalist in the N.H. Kid Governor Civics Project and, while he was not elected as N.H. Kid Governor (that honor went to Suzy Brand from the Sant Bani school), he will serve as a N.H. Kid Executive Councilor to advise the N.H. Kid Governor much in the way the adult panel does. Underage use of tobacco was Patrick’s campaign platform. His campaign team heading into the election was comprised of all students in grades three through five at James Faulkner. His classmates were instrumental in creating Patrick’s campaign video and they all joined him at the State House on Friday.

In addition to the swearing-in ceremony, JFES students were given a tour of the State House and ate lunch in the State House Cafeteria.
