Northern Michigan University alumnus Edward Cook ('80 BS) received a Level I award for achievement in city governance from the Kentucky League of Cities. He is a member of the Oak Grove City Council. The Level I award requires a city official to attend 30 hours of approved training with one hour of ethics training.
Oak Grove is adjacent to the Fort Campbell army base and near the Kentucky border with Clarksville, Tenn.
The awards are part of the KLC City Officials Training Center, a voluntary education program. City officials complete education levels by attending KLC events and submitting outside educational credit from other municipal training.
