Learning about local government first-hand

The 37th annual American Legion Youth Government Day presentation took place last month at the Sheboygan County Courthouse complex.

Thirty-eight students from three area high schools - Sheboygan Christian, Plymouth and Random Lake - took part in the program.

American Legion Sheboygan County Adjutant Mike Liebelt said “The program has been successful over the years because of the support from all levels of Sheboygan County government. “

During the program students attend interactive presentations and are encouraged to actively participate. This year’s sessions were:

Sheboygan County Monopoly – with the Register of Deeds El-len Schleicher, County Treasurer Laura Henning-Lorenz and Plan-ning and Conservation Director Aaron Brault.

Candor in the Courtroom – with the honorable Angela Sutkie-wicz, Branch III Judge and District Attorney Joel Urmanski.

To Protect and Serve – with Sherriff Cory Roeseler, County Veterans Service Officer Charlene Cobb and Health and Human Services Department staff.

Sarah Targeson, University of Wisconsin Extension 4-H youth development leader, has been instrumental in coordinating the American Legion, Sheboygan County government and our high schools.

“Her efforts in coordinating schools, working with the county government and the American Legion and developing program agendas has been a keystone in efforts to make the program work” Mike said.

County Administrator County Administrator Adam Payne and the department heads and elected officials have been constantly improving and innovat-ing the program to keep the students current on the county govern-ment structure and how the departments interact to provide the nec-essary services to the people of Sheboygan County. Without their support this program would not be the success it has been over the year.
