Some Henry County residents had a graduation Tuesday.
The Henry County Citizens Academy is a five month program aimed at teaching people in the county about how government works.
Twelve participants toured the jail, learned about the court system and heard from E-911 officials.
Tuesday morning, they were recongized at the Henry County Commission.
"The idea and the concept was to let leaders of the commuity that would know a little more about county commission I spoke to several of them afterwards and they all had the same theme and that was 'I had no ideawhat county governement did'," said Brasfield.
Henry County officials hope to have another citizen's academy later this year..
