Mayor Lynette Rinker filled the roles of civics teacher and tour guide Wednesday, as she welcomes four four classes of first graders from Cornelius Elementary School to Town Hall.

She replaced Terri Cockerham, who was promoted to chief human resources officer at Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools. Read the full story
