Medford, OR – According to the city officials, the students were also received a certificate of completion for this accomplishment.
The Medford Citizen Academy is a free, eight-week program designed to give participants an inside look into how the City’s local government works and the services we provide.
Each week, students spent time with a different department, where they learned how it operates and then participated in a hands-on activity.
The first session, City Government 101, kicked off with students getting an overview of the City’s departments.
Then they met Mayor Randy Sparacino and City Manager Brian Sjothun, who both talked about their roles and why our local government is essential.
The session concluded with students receiving a tour of City Hall and the Lausmann Annex.
