The Key West Ambassadors Academy graduated its 27th class during the recent City Commission meeting. Twenty-four enthusiastic citizens participated in the 12-week class. They join the more than 500 citizens who now have a better insight to the workings of City government. Each class of the Key West Ambassadors Program has been a special blend of dedicated, involved citizens.
During Tuesday’s City Commission meeting, City Manager Jim Scholl congratulated the graduates of Class 27. Four current city leaders — Mayor Craig Cates, Commissioners Clayton Lopez, Margaret Romero and Sam Kauffman – were elected after finishing this program.
The Key West Ambassadors Academy was established in 2003 and is facilitated by volunteers, all of whom graduated the program. Volunteers LeeAnne Holland, Stuart Strickland, and Gigi Varnum facilitated the class.
