Clarksville Academy - Promoting Academic Excellence, Moral Integrity, Physical Growth, and Civic Responsibility

Weeky News: March 3 – March 6, 2020

Youth In Government

Clarksville Academy had over 30 students participate in the annual YMCA Youth in Government Conference from Thursday-Sunday of the past week. Students wrote legislative bills on a variety of topics and presented them in either the House or the Senate. Student Congressional members and Senators then voted on the presented bills. If the Senate and House passed a bill, it was sent to the student led Governor’s Cabinet and signed into YIG law by the student Governor. This was a wonderful learning opportunity for our students and CA showed up big. See below for a list of our highlights:

  • Will Mabry and John Knight served on the Governor’s Cabinet
  • Bella Allen and Caroline Johnston named to Leadership positions in next year’s Blue Senate—Bella will serve as Sergeant at Arms and Caroline will serve as Chief Clerk.
  • Caroline Giles and Caroline Pennington passed Legislation in the Red House and were awarded Outstanding Bill in the Red House.
  • Bella Allen and Caroline Johnston passed Legislation that was signed into law by the YIG Governor and were awarded Outstanding Bill in the Blue Senate.
  • Zoe Drake was awarded Outstanding Delegate.
  • Noah Goble and Zoe Drake also passed Legislation that was signed into law by the YIG Governor.
  • Hailey Ray and Selby Shipley argued cases before the Supreme Court.
  • Izzy Stapp and Haley Shannon had Legislation passed by the White Senate.
  • Victoria Hilfiker and Nikki Harnage had Legislation passed by the White Senate.
  • Jiya Patel, Molly Clark, and Katie Thrash had Legislation passed by the Blue House.

All of our delegates did a great job and represented CA well. Thank you to Mike Trent & Kyle Christmas for leading our students this year!
