The 74th annual YMCA Youth and Government kicked of the year with the Preleg conference on Saturday January 11, 2020 at West Salem High School. The McKay delegation of 8 students represented McKay well! Three delegates were elected to leadership positions for the 2020 Youth & Government Legislation Session which will be held February 6-8 at Willamette University and in the Senate and House chambers in the State Capitol.
Andrew Kalman was elected Speaker of the House of Representatives, Raquel Marquez will serve as the Chief Clerk of the House, and Luis Marques will fill one of two Sargent-at-Arms positions in the House of Representatives. Congratulations to these awesome McKay students.
All the McKay delegates will present and debate their proposed bills before committees and then the full house and senate chambers during the 3 day conference in February.
For more information, contact any of the McKay delegation or the club adviser, Mr. Garner.
