Recently, Gloria Dei Lutheran Church hosted members of the Hardin County Teen Court for fellowship and snacks in the Gloria Dei Fellowship Hall/gym at Gloria Dei Lutheran School. The Teen Court is made up of local high school students with an adult judge presiding; it is a division of District Court of Hardin County and is sponsored by Judge Kimberly Winkenhofer Shumate and Coordinated by Helen Jacobs. The students are trained in all aspects of the court. After completing their training of six mandatory training sessions and the swearing-in ceremony (graduation), the students willl hold court and will hear actual court cases. Students receive first-hand knowledge of the court process which will improve their communication, problem solving, critical thinking and other valuable skills. No other counties in Kentucky have this opportunity available to them at this time.
