The Youth for the Community Committee (YCC) recently placed all its legislative leaders and will conduct an inauguration ceremony Saturday, Feb. 25.
YCC began when Northview High School students said they wanted to start a club that functions like the legislative and executive branches in a democratic government, and their mission is to provide service to the community.
During its final January meeting, Northview High School (NHS) student Logan Downing signed an election bid to become the group's District 5 Senator.
Then, at the first February meeting, Downing accepted the slate, with Tyler Green giving the second.
After a nomination process was completed, eight of 34 YCC members unanimously voted, by a show of hands, to elect NHS students in the following senate positions: Miranda Ault, District 1 Senator, Evan Pierce, District 2 Senator, Taylor Dickenson, District 3 Senator, and Chandler Damon, District 4 Senator.
The districts encompass:
* First -- Northern Brazil and Carbon,
* Second -- Southwestern Brazil and Staunton,
* Third -- Southeastern Brazil and the remaining portion of Southwestern Brazil,
* Fourth -- Northern Harmony, and
* Fifth -- Southern Harmony and Knightsville.
In addition, the YCC also determined its six representative positions according to age group.
YCC officials appointed NHS students Roxii Maxwell for the 13-14 age group, Allie Brown and Jaike Matthews for the 15-16 age group, Dylan Green and Justin Buckingham to the 17-year-old age group and Brandon Rost to the 18-20 age group.
"We wanted to have a voice for every age group," YCC sponsor Rochell Reberger told The Brazil Times.
"We haven't branched out into every age group yet, because North Clay (Middle School) students are all car rides or bus riders and transportation to the meetings is an issue."
YCC members attended Wednesday evening's City Council meeting to make service project proposals before the council.
The group is planning to help Serving on the Streets, and is looking further into the process and other possible projects.
The group's next meeting is scheduled for Thursday, Feb. 22, 3:30 p.m., at Northview High School in Reberger's classroom, room 108.
The official YCC inauguration ceremony has been rescheduled for Saturday, Feb. 25, at 1 p.m., at the Lakehouse Restaurant located on N. County Road 425 W.
