Students Attend National Conference

Rising seniors Kathleen Browne and Sydney Hyer and graduate Kristen Kauffman (’16) were selected to attend the YMCA’s Conference on National Affairs held July 1-8 at the YMCA Blue Ridge Assembly Center.

Each year, the South Carolina Youth in Government (YIG) organization selects 25 students to participate in this conference, bringing together students from across the country to debate national issues. In addition, Kauffman attended the YIG Horizons Values Conference held in late May at Camp Greenville. Young people from across the state gathered for a weekend to discuss the challenges facing teens today, and positive values are promoted as the answer to these challenges. This was Kauffman’s fourth year in attendance.
