LANCASTER – Eight Lancaster youths were nominated and appointed Tuesday to coveted positions on the 2011-2012 Lancaster Youth Commission.
Anthony Barros, from Antelope Valley High School; Tristan Wilkins, from Bethel Christian; Joshua Kay, from Desert Christian High School; Luis Haro, from Eastside High School; Kaycee Pickett, from Lancaster Baptist High School; Reana Rodio, from Lancaster High School; Cameron Epps-Lee, from Paraclete High School; and Joseph Rodriguez from Soar High School were all sworn in at Tuesday’s City Council Meeting.
The youths will serve a school year term, representing each of their local high schools. The Youth Commission was started 20 years ago by the Council to provide youths an opportunity to talk about their issues and to be a voice for other young people in the community.
Past members of the Youth Commission have done many things for the City, including participating and providing input for the City’s general plan and volunteering in various community organizations.
Students are nominated for the Youth Commission by administrators in their local high schools based on their leadership, volunteer work and academic achievement.
