Students Get Tour of County Government


November 24, 2017

Encouraging a person to do a job is difficult if that person doesn't first know what is required to do the job.

That is part of the motivation in the Cheyenne County Government Day held Monday, Nov. 20, at Cheyenne County Courthouse.

The program started with students from Sidney, Potter-Dix, Dalton and Creek Valley assembling in the Cheyenne County District Courtroom. They were addressed by Hon. Cheyenne County Judge Randin Roland, District Judge Derek Weimer, American Legion Dalton Post No. 301 committeeman John Sanna, Cheyenne County Finance Officer of Sidney Post No. 17 Jack Bruns and Jerry Steele, Cheyenne County Government Day chairman and County Commander of Post Post No. 291. Following the Pledge of Allegiance, a representative of each school introduced the students and teacher or sponsor in attendance.

County officials introduced themselves and chose a school to describe what that county official's job is.

Following the morning of touring county government offices, students met at the Elks Club for lunch with guest speakers Cheyenne County Sheriff John Jenson and County Attorney Paul Schaub.

After lunch, students returned to the District Courtroom. The Cheyenne County Sheriff's Office presented a program on the SWAT team and the Cheyenne County Drug Dog.
