Sugar Hill has named the 2018-2019 Youth Council members. Five of the members, Laura Ann Acker (Youth Mayor), Camryn Flores (Youth Mayor Pro Tem), Nida Merchant, Bhaumi Shah and Camden Doker are returning from the previous school year. The three remaining positions were awarded to Khushi Mehta, Hyunwoo (Daniel) Park, and Alexis (Lexi) Ducote. These high school students will represent the city for the duration of the school year.
According to Youth Council Advisor and former council member Mike Sullivan, “We are very excited about the 2018-19 Youth Council. With a good mix of returning and new council members, we have a great line up of activities and they have selected some great projects both to continue and some new ones as well.”
This is the fifth year for the Youth Council program. Their accomplishments include the creation of a middle school education event during Georgia Cities Week and creating of a group of Youth Ambassadors who focus on volunteer work. The group has been recognized as the example of youth councils around the state.
The Sugar Hill Youth Council was sworn in by Mayor Steve Edwards at the city council meeting Sept. 10.
