County and City of Santa Ana Kick Off Student Government Day

(Santa Ana) – For the second consecutive year, the County of Orange will participate in the City of Santa Ana’s 15th annual Student Government Day. The two agencies will give local high school and junior college students a close-up look at the business of government.

On April 29, students will shadow County and City employees matching 133 students with representatives from County and City offices, agencies and departments. Students will be paired with officials including staff from the offices of Supervisor Charles Smith, Supervisor Todd Spitzer and Supervisor Cynthia Coad.

Smith, Chairman of the Board of Supervisors, and Santa Ana City Manager Dave Ream will kick off the activities at 8:45 a.m. in the Santa Ana City Council Chambers at 22 Civic Center Plaza, Santa Ana.

In addition to shadowing government officials, students will tour facilities such as the Ronald Reagan Federal Building and the Orange County Sheriff-Coroner crime lab. They will also attend presentations by the Sheriff’s Bomb Squad, the K-9 division and the Santa Ana Fire Department.

Students will conclude their day at Hometown Buffet Restaurant in Santa Ana for lunch and an awards presentation.
