The LaGrange Youth Council hosted a pizza and ice-skating party for West Georgia Star students Monday, January 9th at Sweetland Amphitheatre.
“It’s wonderful to see our Youth Council want to give back to their community.” said Creative Director and LaGrange Youth Council Advisor
Adam Speas. “These students really want to make LaGrange better than ever and we are proud to help host events like this one.”
The Youth Council hosted a similar ice-skating party last year as a part of its focused priorities. It was so successful, the group decided to make it an annual event. “We think it’s so important that every kid feels seen and loved and just is able to have a fun time,” said LYC Historian Charlie Key. “It’s amazing to be a part of this event.”
The LaGrange Youth Council is an advisory board composed of Junior and Senior High School students that provides advice and counsel to our local governing body. The youth council selects projects every year that they feel will make the community a better place.
For the 2022-2023 year, the council also voted to focus their efforts on two priorities this year including social opportunities for teens as well as outreach with elderly and veteran communities.
