The young people of Hastings are up to all kinds of great things in our community, and this week we shed a little bit of light on one such positive thing.

Two HHS students sat in with Chief of Police Paul Schnell as the department interviewed candidates for a vacant police officer position.

The two proved to be insightful to Schnell, who called the experience "incredibly positive."

We applaud the department for keeping the youth of Hastings in mind when they select a new officer.

As for the youths who took part, they should be applauded for taking the task seriously and providing meaningful insight to Schnell and to the department.

They are Thomas Mattimiro and Kaylee Strandness, and we thank them for their hard work.

On the new officer: We should know more about him soon, and will report on that next week.
