Beginning this month, local high school students will experience government beyond the classroom through the Georgia Civic Awareness Program for Students (GCAPS) in Rockdale County.
This year, Rockdale County Cooperative Extension selected eight local high school students to participate in leadership training and team building exercises, tour County facilities, and interact with local and state public officials. The program gives high school students direct access to local government by educating them about the responsibilities of local government and the essential services it provides to citizens. The following high school students were chosen to participate in GCAPS:
Annaliese Vojnich, Salem High School
Brandon Curtis, Heritage High School
Amaitani Perez, Rockdale Open Campus
Erich Iverson, Rockdale Magnet
Christopher Thomas, Heritage High School
TaViana Crum, Rockdale Magnet
Kaitlynn Wallace, Home School
Audry Rubia, Rockdale County High School
The six-month program, funded through a grant from Association County Commissioners of Georgia, runs now through April.
