Student Government -
Over the weekend 5 Scott Johnson students travelled to Austin to compete in the YMCA Junior Youth and Government State Competition. This competition included hundreds of students from across the state. In order to qualify for this competition the students had to write an original legislative bill. Of the 4 bills submitted by Scott Johnson, 3 were passed by the House of Representatives. A legislative bill written by Jonathan Buckner and Chibunie Ugwaunze was passed and signed into law by Youth and Government. Of the hundreds of bills submitted only 8 were signed by the Governor, making this a top honor for Scott Johnson. 6th Grader Jonathan Buckner was awarded as Outstanding Delegate for McKinney.
Throughout the weekend our delegation received several compliments on their outstanding debating ability and professionalism as delegates. Even though this was our first year at this competition we proved that we are the delegation to watch. The five delegates from Scott Johnson not only exhibited the four core values of the YMCA, but also every letter of Tiger PRIDE!
Please congratulate Jonathan Bucker, Chubunie Ugwunze, Busira Lassisi, Kehana Cooper, and Ini Dim on their enormous success!
