The Rockdale Democratic Party recently honored eight individuals who completed its Blue Rockdale Academy, a series of free, one-hour workshops designed to train individuals to work on campaigns and assist with the elections process.

The graduates of the Blue Academy were Lewis Carr, Tommy Plummer, Roslyn Ridgeway, Andrea Snow, Susan Tancraitor, Eric Washington, Queen Washington and Doreen Williams, who is running for the Rockdale County Board of Commissioners, Post 2.
