The Glynn County Citizen’s Academy (GCCA) recently held a graduation ceremony for its inaugural class of 20 citizens who wanted to “Get to know Glynn County.” Bill Brunson, Glynn County Board of Commissioners vice-chairman, lead the class to give some of his insights into local government, took questions and gave the participants a small gift as a “thank you” for completing the academy.

The GCCA is an annual program that was included in the 2017 Glynn County Strategic Plan as a way to enhance citizen education and engagement.
