KYA is virtual but no less successful for GRC

It wasn’t normal but it will still a valuable experience.

GRC students normally join 1,000 other high schoolers from across the state in Louisville for a three-day Kentucky Youth Assembly, where students serve as part of a model state government.

The Monday and Tuesday virtual conference gave students the chance to interact with their peers around the state.

“This year it looked different as it was a two-day virtual conference, but still a great experience of connecting with other high school students from across the state,” said KYA sponsor Amanda Crowell.

Participants from GRC, along with Ms. Crowell, were:

  • Ella Cooper (Delegate)
  • Emma Hackworth (Supreme Court Attorney)
  • Allison “Ruthie” Houston (Supreme Court Attorney)
  • Sarah James (Delegate)
  • Marisol Lopez (Bill Author)
  • Lainie Mitchell (Delegate)
  • Isabelle “Izzie” Smith (Bill Author)
  • Reagan Smith (Bill Author)
  • Brook Strode (Delegate)
  • Mallory Weistroffer (Delegate)

Ruthie Houston was our Outstanding Delegate.

Izzie Smith, Marisol Lopez, and Reagan Smith’s bill on voter registration passed both Houses and was ranked as one of the highest bills at our conference.
