Throughout the years, Student Council members have been active in the community and now their voices can be heard. Twenty two members have been picked to be a part of the Lewisville Youth Action Council.

Students were selected in June and sworn in as Youth Action Council members during the council meeting on Monday, Sept. 11. In addition to the 22 students inducted from Main and Harmon, two students from Hebron and one homeschooled student will also serve on the council.

As part of the council, the young service leaders will meet once a month to advise the council members on youth related issues and will also inspire others to be hands on as well.

“They act as youth service ambassadors in Lewisville by participating in outreach around teen initiatives,” assistant city manager Melinda Galler said. “[They will] design and plan new youth events and activities to encourage youth involvement in the community.”

To be a part of the council, students were required to go through an application process. The application questioned their leadership qualities and events that they participated in throughout the school year.

“I felt pretty excited [after knowing I was chosen] because I feel like my voice will now be heard,” student body multicultural officer Cameron Dockery said. “I’m pretty proud to represent the youth of Lewisville by being on the council; I think that will bring in a lot of open ideas.”

While most of the students have been to leaderships camps, those who haven’t bring their own individual qualities and skills to the table. All of their qualities come together to create ideas for the community.

“They definitely have had the training and the mind set to be good leaders and some who haven’t been in the program have brought different leaderships qualities of other kinds like their interest and likes,” StuCo adviser Allison Stamey said.

The Youth Action Council provides a better insight on how politics work within our community.

“If I ever wanted to be a part of the city government then being on the youth council will give me a lot of background, and it really just gives us a breakdown on how our city works and how our city government works,” Dockery said.
