Sylvester-Worth County Government Committee in action!!
The Sylvester-Worth County Chamber of Commerce hosted the 8th Grade Ambassadors Government Tour on April 28, 2017. The purpose of the tour is to educate the students about the resources that are available in their own community. The students were exposed to the local government and judicial system, emergency management and fire, the importance of graduating high school, keeping their dollars local with businesses in Worth County, keeping the community clean and economic development.
We would like to thank our Government Committee, Worth County Middle School and Worth County Board of Education, Worth County Board of Commissioners, Probate Court, Clerks Office, Registrar’s Office, Sheriff’s Office, Tax Commissioner and Tax Assessor’s Office, Magistrate’s Office, District Attorney’s Office and Judge Powell for working with us to allow the students to witness a live trial, and the City of Sylvester Fire Department, Mayor, City Manager and Staff, and City Police Department for the great tours. We were able to educate our students why we are WORTH it!!
