Merrol Hyde Magnet School

It was a fun experience and an exciting weekend for the 43 students from Merrol Hyde who attended the Youth in Government conference in Nashville on March 31-April 3. The YMCA Center for Civic Engagement is a statewide leadership development and civics program designed to allow students  to experience the processes of government in a hands-on way. Students in the program engage in mock governments at the state level. At the YIG conference, students make friends from a variety of backgrounds, engage in respectful debate, practice public speaking, and find their voice.
