Applications are taken in the spring for the following school year with selection based on recommendations and students’ desire to serve the community. The Council works many hours serving the community by working with REDA and other groups.  The Council is responsible for working many community events such as Highway 49 Festival, the community’s Christmas events, and many of the Senior Adult Events.

“The youth of our community are the future of our city. We must not only provide them with an education and caring environment, but a way to create an atmosphere in which they would like to live.”  Author Unknown
