A long standing tradition at Montgomery Catholic Preparatory School, seven Montgomery Catholic students participated in the YMCA’s 2016 Youth Legislature. They were from left to right: Nate Smith, James Sadie, Brian Anderson, Cheyenne Hayes, Nicholas Brown, Austin Collett and Christian Friday.
Though a small group participated in 2016, MCPS had a successful weekend. Junior, Brian Anderson did an excellent job serving as the House Pro-Temp and represented the school well. The team had four bills that made it to the calendar with two debated on the floor, including “Investigation into Executive Spending and Spending Cuts” written by junior, James Sadie which was successfully signed into law after it passed unanimously in both the House and the Senate. All of the Montgomery Catholic students were able to debate, and freshman Christian Friday was recognized as a First Year Outstanding Delegate. Both Sadie and Anderson were invited to attend the Conference on National Affairs this summer.
Montgomery Catholic Preparatory School’s Youth Legislature team is sponsored by faculty members Justin Castanza and Stefanie Nelson.
