May is graduation season and the Mayor's Office wishes to extend a sincere congratulations to each graduate in our county.

“The successful completion of high school is a huge milestone for teens,” said Mayor Justin Green. “This accomplishment represents years of hard work and dedication. Whether students are moving on to college, working toward a certification in their chosen field, entering the armed services or going straight into the workforce, we wish them all the best.”

The Mayor's Office continues to work with city leadership to create and maintain a city that young people want to call home.

"It is our hope that the young people who grew up here will want to continue to work and reside in Salem," Green stated. 

During this exciting time, the Mayor's Office wants to congratulate our graduates as they embark on the next phase in their lives.
