Hundreds of WCS students are learning the ins and outs of state government.
Of the 1,700 students who participated in this year’s YMCA Youth in Government Conference March 2-5, organizers say 25 percent were from Williamson County Schools. The annual conference gives participants an opportunity to serve roles in a variety of positions ranging from governor to supreme court to press corps.
Of the three governors selected to head the conference, two were from Williamson County Schools. They were Fairview High’s Trey Jones and Franklin High’s Musa Subramaniam. The two students were elected to the position by their peers and had the chance to meet with Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam to discuss their role at the conference.
The Williamson County schools that participated in the program are Brentwood High, Brentwood Middle, Centennial High, Fairview High, Fairview Middle, Franklin High, Grassland Middle, Heritage Middle, Hillsboro School, Independence High, Page High, Page Middle, Ravenwood High, Spring Station Middle, Summit High, Sunset Middle and Woodland Middle.
