Mayor Ronnie Williams has reignited the Mayor’s Youth Council, which will begin meeting in January. A total of 25 students from local high schools will be chosen through an application process. Each participant must be a junior or senior in a public or private school in the City of Natchitoches, have a GPA of at least 2.5, turn in a completed application and commit to attending scheduled meetings.
The City of Natchitoches Mayor Youth Council’s mission is to promote civic engagement and inspire the next generation of leaders by promoting participation in city government and volunteerism. The chosen students will work together in a culminating activity that advances and inspires change in the City of Natchitoches.
