The City of LaGrange graduated its inaugural LaGrange 101 Class Tuesday night at the regular City Council meeting.
This is a new class hosted by the City of LaGrange to give local citizens an opportunity to experience an inside look at city government. The goal of the class is also to help develop informed and involved citizens.
The fifteen members of this LaGrange 101 class were chosen by the Mayor and City Council. They include Chad Cooper, Ernest Ward, Tommy Murphy, Alonzo Roberts, Chis Hudson, Bill Stump, Meredith Key, Alicia Hill, Caarolyn Hamid, Leon Childs, Susan Ferguson, Robby Burch, Dale Jackson, Anthony Talley, & Curtis Brown.
LaGrange 101 is a six-week class that met Monday evenings from 5:30-8:00 p.m. The first class was Monday, October 1st. The final class was Monday, November 5th. Each week participants learn about two departments of the local government.
Graduation from the class took place at the LaGrange City Council meeting Tuesday, November 13th.
Before the class began each participant was asked to submit three concerns they want addressed about the City of LaGrange. The presenters each week incorporated the concerns submitted into their presentations.
