DOUGLAS MAYOR’S YOUTH COUNCIL SEPTEMBER MEETING

The Douglas Mayor’s Youth Council (DMYC) held its monthly meeting on September 20, 2018, at 6pm at City Hall.  Items on the agenda included discussion about the Instagram and Facebook social media pages for the Youth Council, recognition of youth in our community, and recognition of the Citizens Christian Academy’s Athletics Department.  The council also heard presentations from Jessica Williams (Anti-Bullying Campaign & March) and Blondale Thomas (Childhood Cancer Awareness Group of Coffee County) about their programs, followed by the Jr. Public Information report.

For the month of September, Miss Samantha Martin was chosen as the outstanding youth council member to spotlight.   Samantha is the daughter of James Martin and Jennifer Teston and is one of four siblings.  Currently, she is a Junior at Coffee High School and is dual enrolled at South Georgia State College.  She is the Co-editor of the Chariot online and is a member of the Coffee Care club.  Samantha has applied for acceptance into the National Honor Society. She is on track to be an honor graduate and will also graduate with an Associate Degree from South Georgia.  After high school, she hopes to become a pediatrician and later seek a career in politics as an advocate for child healthcare.

The Douglas Mayor’s Youth Council meets each third Thursday of each month at 6:00pm at City Hall in the Council Chambers.  The MYC wants to hear from citizens about youth in our community that are doing exceptional things with their lives.  To submit a youth or youth group to be recognized, please contact Dinitra Williams, Douglas Mayor’s Youth Council Coordinator, at dwilliams@cityofdouglas.com or call the City Clerk’s office at (912) 389-3405.
