Campbell County Citizens Academy accepting applications for 25 spots in 2022 session

Campbell County Fiscal Court will select 25 participants for a nine-week educational program, the Campbell County Citizens Academy, which will meet each Monday evening from 6-8:30 p.m. from September 12 through November 14.

Presentations on a wide variety of subjects will be given by local elected officials, community partners, and county staff. The purpose of the Academy is to improve civic education and increase citizen engagement in the workings of the general county government.

Participants will walk away with a first-hand knowledge about their county government from how county tax dollars are put to work to fund basic services to how the county works with various partners to support regional economic growth and outstanding quality of life.

A 2018 participant said that she, “was never bored” and that she learned “information that was brand new, even though I’ve lived here my whole life.”

“Our goal in delivering this program is to share information about the county’s structure and services with more people; if we are successful, my hope is that more citizens will become interested and more engaged in the important public work that we do,” said Steve Pendery, Judge/Executive.

Campbell County Fiscal Court encourages interested residents and business owners to apply.

Application must be received by August 26th to be considered.
