LAWTON, OK (TNN) - Eisenhower High School’s Youth and Government Program just finished up their state conference.
There students chose between different branches of government, getting the chance to go through the actual legislative process.
Eisenhower's program is the only one like it currently in Lawton.
The Youth in Government faculty advisor said she’s so proud of these students, and is always impressed with their ability to interact with state representatives.
“They have poise and grace and confidence and grace under pressure they have the ability to speak anyplace, anytime," said Faculty advisor Michelle Churchwell.
“I got involved because my brothers were involved and I really fell in love with it. I guess I wanted to take a leadership role and this program taught me a lot about leadership,” said Youth and Government President Sydney Brice.
“I’ve met a lot of people and they gave me the opportunity to network with people that will help later in life," said Delegate Luke Churchwell.
Each year, the Lawton Public Schools foundation awards the Eisenhower student delegates a grant so they can attend the state conference.
