This year's class went through 20 hours of lectures, listening to 37 speakers over the course of 10 weeks. Among those professors was Council President John Cusick. He said that, for years, the only thing he knew about the County was that it provides the voting machines and gave him a marriage license.
"I vote and I'm still married, so I figured the county must still be working," he quipped.

Was it one of the courthouse ghosts rumored to walk the halls nightly? The ghost of a person hung at the courthouse during the 1880's?
"We started in the dark, but now we can see," quipped Moore Township's Matt Miles, regarded as the youngest graduate.

This year's graduating class also include Glenn Geissinger and Mat Benol, who were elected by the voters on November 5 to a four-year term as County Council members. Joan Dean, a former president of the Northampton County, is another grad.
But the most important student was Donna Terrio, who with her husband runs the courthouse cafeteria. She brought cake.
