On March 9, Youth Leadership Grundy traveled to the state capitol in Nashville. While there, students were able to visit the legislature and hear from several important officials including Ray Robinson, TN Hwy State Patrol; Max Haston, Adjutant General; and Mark Gwyn, Director of TBI.
During the trip, the students and adults enjoyed a meal courtesy of State Representative Kevin Dunlap. The students spent time talking with both Dunlap and Senator Janice Bowling.
Before returning to Grundy County, Leadership students had a chance encounter with Governor Bill Haslam who took time out to pose for a picture.
Youth Gayle VanHooser and Jessica Lusk sponsor Leadership Grundy. Shandah Brady served as trip chaperon on the trip. Organizers would like to thank the local sponsors who donate to make this program a success.
