Georgia Civic Awareness Program brings government closer to Rockdale students

CONYERS, Ga. – 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.
