PLANO - Today, State Representative Jeff Leach announced Class 2 of the House District 67 Student Leadership Advisory Council, comprised of exemplary high school students from the community who have committed to serve in the program during the 2015-2016 school year. After undergoing an intensive application process, the students in Class 2 were carefully reviewed and selected by the Student Leadership Advisory Council Selections Committee, made up of various community leaders within House District 67.

Launched in 2014 by Representative Leach, the House District 67 Student Leadership Advisory Council provides local area high school students with a unique opportunity to engage in the legislative process alongside Representative Leach and his staff and to obtain a hands-on education of the role and inner-workings of Texas state government. Selected students will attend several meetings throughout the 2015-2016 school year. Meetings are led by Representative Leach and his staff as well as other elected officials, and cover various topics including the significance of community involvement, the role and functions of state government and the overall legislative process.

Stated Leach, "Since the formation of my Student Leadership Advisory Council, I have gained a new perspective as a legislator by interacting and collaborating with these talented, bright students - the future leaders of our great state. We have a duty to educate and empower the next generation of Texas leaders by teaching them the value of leadership, public advocacy and civic engagement. It is my hope that this program continues to serve as a unique venue that fosters the intrinsic value of public service.”
