Middle School - Kentucky Youth Assembly
Middle School - Kentucky Youth Assembly
"KMS students accomplished more than our state government has in 12 years in one day!" That was the reaction of Mercer County Schools Superintendent, Dennis Davis, after hearing that a group of students passed a bill to help fund the pension crisis at the KY Youth Assembly (KYA) in Louisville recently. KYA is an educational conference where students take part in a model state government. A total of 23 students from KMS attended the 3 day conference. Bill authors Mason Kirkland, Liam Potts, Sam Bafundo, and Tyler Sims wrote and presented the bill to fund the pension crisis. Their idea was to increase the sales tax 1% and the money collected would go to support the retirement funds of state workers and KY teachers. Abby Sears, Sage Markham, Kate Carlton, Sadie Peavler, and Kylie Mobley also authored and presented a bill on green energy. Their bill passed the student house but not the senate. Ashley Howard and Nic Winburn served as chairpersons on the first night of committee meetings where bills were ranked. Howard was selected to serve the second day as a clerk in the House annex in Frankfort.  Students traveled to the Capitol in Frankfort and debated several bills, then had lunch at Claudia Sanders' restaurant in Simpsonville before returning to the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Louisville for the remainder of the conference. On the final day, awards were given. Kate Carlton received an Outstanding Speaker award and Abby Sears received the Outstanding Delegate award.  Read More

MCSH Y Club students attended the Kentucky Youth Assembly (KYA) conference in Louisville, Dec. 5-7. KYA is a student led conference where students present their legislative ideas in a model state government. There were two groups of students who wrote and presented bills at the conference. On the first night, delegates and bill authors met in committee meetings. On the second day, delegates debated several bills at the Capitol in Frankfort, then had lunch at Claudia Sanders' restaurant in Simpsonville before returning to the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Louisville.
Bill authors  Bella Garrett, Abby Dean, and Jaycie Catlett presented their bill, an act relating to expand the sexual education curriculum in all KY schools. After debate, it was passed by the student delegates and signed by the student governor.
Bill authors Bailey Hall, Annie Moffitt, Comfort Gimba, and Grace Baskin presented their bill, an act relating to authorizing rolling backpacks in KY schools. It passed the House but not the Senate.
 Ania Boutin served as doorkeeper on the first night and second day. She also received the (only) Outstanding Doorkeeper award as well as delegate award.  
Georgia Turpin served as chairperson in first night committee meetings. She was selected to serve as chair on the second day, too. (Not everyone is selected.)
