County donates $1k to Project Graduation

The Adair County Fiscal Court, at the request of Sheriff Brockman, donated $1,000 to Project Graduation this week.

It is the goal of project graduation to provide a safe substance free night for seniors on their graduating night. They provide an evening of activities, prizes including cash give aways, food, and much more.

The funds were made available when Sheriff Brockman made a request to the County Judge Executive and the Fiscal Court at the regular monthly meeting on Monday night, asking that funds be used from the ABC account. The ABC account consists of money that is generated from the sale of alcoholic beverages in Adair County.

State regulations are very strict on the use of these funds. They cannot be used for general purposes of the county such as payroll, roads, supplies etc. They must be used directly for law enforcement related to alcohol issues, prevention of alcohol abuse or educational activities related to alcohol abuse.

Sheriff Brockman stated that the participation of seniors in Project Graduation is large and feels it is a very worthy event to help provide a safe alternative for the kids instead of attending graduation parties. The Fiscal Court agreed on the importance of the program and voted full support across the court for the donation.
