Board recognizes 2023-2024 Mayor’s Youth Council


The Lucky City’s 2023-2024 Mayor’s Youth Council kicked off their school year by receiving recognition from Mayor Walter Morrison and aldermen on Sep. 12. 

Morrison said the new council is made up of over 30 members from seven different schools, comprising freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and seniors. 

“They have gone through a long process of filling out applications and I’d like to recognize all of them,” Morrison said. 

The Gluckstadt Mayor’s Youth Council was founded in August 2022 after Germantown’s Julia Lever pitched the idea to the board. After presenting her ideas, the board quickly approved the council.  

At the end of the 2022-2023 school year, Lever hoped the council would double in size for its second year, and that goal was met with 32 members for the 2023-2024 school year, compared to 15 members during the first year. 

All of the council members stood before the board and introduced themselves. 

The members include: 

• Julia Lever (Germantown High School, junior)

• Ava Bondurant (Jackson Academy, freshman)

• Presley McCullouch (Germantown High School, freshman)
