Sharp students pass bill at Kentucky Youth Assembly

Pictured in Senate Chambers after the presentation of their bill are Phillip A. Sharp Middle School delegates Morgan McKinney and Mikinley Grace Lustenberg.

Phillip A. Sharp Middle School students, Mikinley Grace Lustenberg and Morgan McKinney, participated at the Kentucky Youth Assembly (KYA) in Frankfort and Louisville from December 9th through the 11th. During this experience at the Kentucky Youth Assembly they participated directly in a simulation of the Commonwealth’s democratic process. Acting as Senators and Representatives, students wrote, debated, and voted on legislation that affects them. Through this YMCA sponsored program, students experienced the rich spectrum of activity that constitutes our political process.
