CHS students win awards at KYA

Campbellsville High School students were honored with several awards at the Kentucky Youth Assembly session on Nov. 19-21.

 

The school’s Kentucky YMCA Youth Association chapter attended the annual program, which allows students to serve as a part of a model state government.

 

As a group, CHS received an Honor Level Community Service award and a Delegation of Excellence award.

 

The Delegation of Excellence award is for outstanding performance, enthusiasm, compliance to the guidelines and positive interaction with other delegations.

 

The community service award honors the CHS group for its commitment to serving its community.

 

At KYA, delegates attending vote to elect students to serve in 11 positions. This year, two of the 11 positions went to CHS students.

 

CHS freshman Zaquan Cowan was elected as president of the Bluegrass Senate.

 

Bluegrass is a separate group designed to give incoming freshmen a platform and to become familiar with the KYA program. All votes in Bluegrass elections come from the freshmen group.

 

Jeremiah Jackson, a junior, was elected to the Editor in Chief position. He also served as a media delegate.

 

Reagan Knight, also a junior, ran for the governor position against 19 candidates and represented CHS very well.

 

CHS sophomore Cole Kidwell received an Outstanding Speaker Award.

 

CHS juniors Tatem Wiseman, Salena Ritchie and Myles Murrell authored a bill that would allow teachers the right to carry firearms in school, as long as they have a concealed carry license and background check.

 

Thirty-two students from CHS attended this year’s KYA session, which was at Crowne Plaza in Louisville.

 

Lauryn Agathen, a sophomore, served as a lobbyist.

 

CHS juniors Spencer Swafford and Brandon Greer were parliamentarians.

 

And sophomores Zaria Cowan and Gavin Johnson and junior Elizabeth Sullivan served as attorneys.

 

According to CHS KYA sponsor, this was the largest KYA convention with more than 1,600 students attending.

 

KYA offers students the opportunity to learn about a wide variety of issues, develop critical thinking skills and articulate their beliefs while engaging constructively with their peers from around the Commonwealth.
