On Thursday, April 24, the Oakland County Board of Commissioners welcomed high school students for the Annual Youth in Government Day program in recognition of National County Government Month. This year’s theme was “Ready and Resilient Counties: Prepare. Respond. Thrive.”
Students met members of the Oakland County Board of Commissioners, the Deputy County Executive/Chief Information Officer, the county clerk, the County Water Resources commissioner, the county treasurer, and the Circuit Court chief judge.
They also met representatives from the county’s Homeland Security Division and the Oakland County Sheriff Division along with seeing special presentations and viewing the response equipment/vehicles such as the Humvee, the Mobile Command Unit, the Sheriff’s BearCat equipment, and the K-9 Unit.
Oakland County’s Youth in Government Day program was featured in the National Association of Counties “County News” nationally and recognized as one of three model programs across the country in February 2014.
Last year, in July 2013, members of the Oakland County Board of Commissioners received an award from the National Association of Counties recognizing the Youth in Government Program’s efforts for Celebrating National County Government Month during the association’s national conference in Fort Worth, Texas.
