Omak College Civics Week

Secretary of State Sam Reed visits Wenatchee Valley College at Omak April 17

Secretary of State Sam Reed will visit the Wenatchee Valley College at Omak campus at noon on Tuesday, April 17, to encourage students to vote as part of College Civics Week. Reed will meet with students in the Native Garden and participate in a tree-planting ceremony in commemoration of the annual WVC at Omak Green Fest event scheduled for Friday, April 20.

College Civics Week takes place April 9 to 13. Reed started the College Civics program in 2005 to improve students’ understanding of elections and empower Washington’s youngest voters to make real changes in their communities and the world. Currently more than 60 campuses throughout Washington state participate in College Civics. Student and staff ambassadors to the College Civics Week program have registered thousands of college-age voters and organized on-campus civic education events.
