A few words from TYLA ’17 and ’18 featured guest Brianna Lennon:

“My morning with the Truman Youth Leadership Academy was memorable. We
worked on stump speeches for local office and the kids were really
invested in their platforms and promises as candidates. It was great
to see their excitement and intelligence shine through as they
delivered their speeches. Their energy was contagious and it was clear
that many of them were thinking about running for office in the
future. I know that I got as much out of the experience as they did.”

Thank you to our partners and sponsors!
