The Granville County Board of Commissioners held a regular meeting on Monday, July 1 at the Granville County Convention and Expo Center.

This year’s cohort includes Destani Harris (Granville Central High School), Madison Martinez-Molina (South Granville High School), Jazmin Santiago-Barrera (Granville Early College High School), Leah Scott (Henderson Collegiate High School), and Praley Williams (Granville Early College High School).
