MARTIN COUNTY -- With the recent graduation of Class 42, Martin County's award-wining Citizens Academy and Resource Education series achieves a significant milestone of nearly 2,000 citizen graduates. A total of 1,903 citizens have graduated since the program began in 1999.

CARES is open to all citizens who wish to familiarize themselves with the function and purpose of their local government.

"Upon graduation these citizens become our ambassadors," said Taryn Kryzda, county administrator. "As a result of going through CARES, they become more knowledgeable about government operations and can share this valuable information with their friends and neighbors."

In a series of weekly sessions held over a six-week period, citizens hear presentations from all departments under the Board of County Commissioners and the county's constitutional officers, including the Sheriff and Tax Collector.

A visit to several Martin County schools and a presentation by the Children's Services Council are among the highlights. Field trips are arranged to county facilities, including the public safety complex, a water treatment plant and Sailfish Splash Waterpark.
