Connecticut Supreme Court Justice Richard A. Robinson reads Dr. Seuss’ Did I Ever Tell You How Lucky You Are? during a school-wide assembly March 5 at Corpus Christi School in Wethersfield.
Students dressed in Dr. Seuss-themed outfits and participated in fund-raising efforts to buy books for a new library in Mozambique, Africa, being built under the guidance of Corpus Christi 2005 alumna Lauren Hoisl, a Peace Corps volunteer who teaches English in Mozambique.
Justice Robinson also answered questions about the legal system.
He told the Transcript, “I think it’s critically important for young people to learn how government works, because otherwise it’s a mysterious black box. We are a government of the people by the people, so the people have to participate, and the court can’t be separate out there somewhere in an ivory tower. (Photo by Jack Sheedy)
