Kingman Veterans Treatment Court to Induct Hall of Fame
KINGMAN, Ariz. – The Kingman Veterans Treatment Court (VTC) is set to induct seven members into its first ever Hall of Fame class at noon on September 24, 2020, in recognition of the upcoming five-year anniversary of the Kingman VTC Program. The ceremony is scheduled to take place at the Kingman Municipal Courthouse which is located at 219 North 4th Street. Because of continued social-distancing guidelines, there will be limited attendance and seating. We ask the community to watch live on the local City of Kingman YouTube page: www.youtube.com/cityofkingman. The 2020 Kingman VTC Hall of Fame Class inductees include: Jim Consolato, Jr. (mentoring), Kingman Police Chief Rusty Cooper (law enforcement), Pat Farrell (community), Kingman Mayor Jen Miles (leadership), Alexis Stewart (treatment), Joe Throneberry (resources) and Bryan Whitney (legal).
The Kingman Veterans Treatment Court is overseen by City Magistrate Jeffrey Singer. To date the Kingman VTC Program has graduated 50 Veterans from its program since its inception on December 9, 2015. As the VTC Program is set to celebrate its five-year anniversary, Judge Singer felt it was time to recognize those who have contributed so much to its success. “We want to honor those who have been instrumental with the growth and success of our Vet Court program,” Singer said. “These seven individuals have gone above and beyond in helping not only our Vet Court Program thrive, but the Veteran community as a whole. They truly have exemplified our motto ‘Leave No Veteran Behind.’”
According to program materials, the Kingman Veterans Treatment Court is a problem-solving program that serves Veterans who struggle with addictions, mental illness, PTSD and/or any other issues that a Veteran may have. The program promotes sobriety, recovery and stability so that each participant has the opportunity to be a productive and healthy Veteran and citizen. In addition, the Kingman VTC Program sponsors a Veterans Resource Team that coordinates with the City of Kingman in promoting the Mayor’s Challenge to End Veteran Homelessness. The Kingman VTC Program also has its own Mentor Corps that has over 40 volunteer Veteran mentors who support the efforts of the Vet Court Program.
