KYA, Kentucky Youth Assembly is a student-ran mock government program made possible by the Kentucky YMCA each fall. Students from all over Kentucky assemble to debate and possibly create new legislature for our state. It’s an opportunity for the young people of Kentucky to learn just how important it is that their voice be heard! 14 students from Bourbon County Middle School attended MS1 conference this year and had a wonderful time! Taylor Koch ran for Governor, Abby Traylor chaired and clerked, MacKenzie McCarty, Syndney Shaffer and Ellie Boshears were bill sponsors and Emma Dahlstrom, Destin Turner, Erick, Rosales Rodriguez, Case Davis, Anna Rich, Anna Mullikin, Elly Traylor and Macey McKinzie were delegates for Bourbon County! Elly Traylor came away with the Outstanding Delegate award and Bourbon County Delegation was names a Premiere Delegation for their outstanding representation! They are all looking forward to the next conference in March, KUNA!
