St. Helena – Today, Rep. Mike Thompson (CA-04) and Assemblymember Cecilia Aguiar-Curry announced the invitation to high school students to join their Student Leadership Council. The Student Leadership Council is an exciting program that allows local students to work directly with their elected officials and staff to develop leadership skills, learn how government works, and engage with our community. The Council is open to all high school students who live in California's Fourth Congressional District or California's Fourth Assembly District.
“Learning about the importance of government, responsible public service, and leadership is vital to the education of our students,” said Thompson. “The Student Leadership Council is an incredible opportunity for students from our region to gain these skills and work with other outstanding student leaders in a collaborative setting to learn about government. I encourage all high school students in our area to apply now.”
“I am thrilled to once again partner with Congressman Mike Thompson for this year’s 2023 Student Leadership Council,” said Aguiar-Curry. “This is a great opportunity for high school students to meet community leaders, learn about the various levels of government, grow their own leadership skills, and learn how to collaborate with others. I hope all of my high school student constituents in Assembly District 4 apply!”
