WLBT reporter graduates FBI Citizens Academy

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

May is graduation month and the FBI Citizens Academy is no exception. For six weeks now, citizens from a variety of professions have been learning the inner workings of the bureau here in Mississippi. 

One of those graduates was WLBT reporter and weekend anchor, Cheryl Lasseter. 

Before she received her diploma, there was a final exam, of sorts. 

She gave a book report on FBI history and received a special medallion for the effort. 

The graduation ceremony was held at the Colonial Country Club in Jackson.

The FBI Citizens Academy is an outreach program in its sixth year, held in the fall and spring. 

It's designed to help the agency empower citizens to help them fight terrorism and crime.
