On Tuesday May 14, 2019 the Young Leaguers learned about the 20/20 Census. Pat Doman of the Census Committee discussed the 2020 Census in great detail by explaining the history of the census and its importance to society. The Census can bring finances for better roads and schools in our state, and the Young Leaguers can’t wait to start promoting this initiative.

May is Lupus Awareness month and Brie Salter founder of the Lupie Girl foundation provided the Young Leaguers about lupus, how she manages the disease, and how she is in the beginning stages of starting her own non-profit organization. Member Kevin Baker also gave a fun and informative presentation on the Electoral College.
