It was more than just business as usual at the Chatham County Commission meeting today. Commissioners honored the youth commission. For a brief while, the commission meeting turned into a special graduation ceremony, with awards for the seniors and their role as youth commissioners.
These grads were responsible for several community projects like Rock the Vote.
"This is a day we all look forward to because this is graduation and even though they're graduating, we are just so sad to see them leave because they've really raised the bar this year in terms of youth activities and youth leadership skills they've provided," said commissioner Dr. Priscilla Thomas.
Our congratulations to all of them.
