From April 14-17, 58 SJCS high school students attend the YIG Convention in Columbia — in person! Masked, bills and cases ready, gavels and gowns in hand, these students participated in all aspects of the program.

From providing leadership through Governor Ishan Lal and his staff, to being appointed leadership positions, to crafting award-winning legislation, to triumphing in the appeals division of Constitutional Law and sitting in judgment thereof, SJCS students made a difference.

Two of our three candidates won their races: Camille Ferguson for Attorney General and Madeline Manning for Superintendent of Education.

It was an outstanding conference, and one must continually practice democracy for it to continue!

The following students received special achievements and awards:

Ishan Lal: Governor’s Award
Davis Taylor: Drew Everson Spirit of YIG Award
Averi Brice: Outstanding Appeals Attorney Award
Madison Powers: Outstanding Appeals Attorney Award
Madeline Manning: Outstanding Statesman Award
