Escambia Youth Commissioners Meet Their Adult Counterparts

October 8, 2019

The Escambia County Commission had the chance last week to meet the junior counterparts on the Escambia County Youth Commission.

The Youth Commission gives five outstanding youths the opportunity to learn more about civics and local government through firsthand experience. For the next eight months, they will be able to tour the county’s many facilities, attend board meetings, and see issues the county faces each day.

Youth Commission members are:

  • Maggie Brown, Tate High School junior
  • Mallory Bell, Escambia High School sophomore
  • Amelia Myers, Pensacola HS IB sophomore
  • Trinity Kyles, Pensacola High School sophomore
  • Claire Jimenez, Pensacola Catholic High School junior

Sponsored by the Escambia County Board of Commissioners, the Escambia County Youth Commission is a leadership and service-oriented program that empowers young people to become knowledgeable and involved in the local governmental process.
