Ramsay High School began charting a new course in history by inducting its very first group of officers and members into the first Youth In Government Club (YIG) sponsored by the YMCA. The club elected Jada Lett (President), Asllynne Kemp (VP), Jillian Jolly (Secretary), Micaiah Collins (Parliamentarian), Autumn Jones (Chaplin), Myla Johnson and Royal Hughes (Co-Activities Coordinators). With the establishment of the YIG club, Ramsay High School joins an elite group of schools in the metro area with YIG clubs, such as Mountain Brook and Spain Park High School. The purpose of YIG is to provide tangible experiences for students on how the executive, legislative, and judicial processes work in the state of Alabama.
The induction ceremony was conducted at the YMCA Youth Center. Our featured speaker was Mrs. Terri Harvill, the District Vice President for the YMCA of Greater Birmingham. Mrs. Harvill gave a very heartwarming and informative message regarding the benefits and opportunities she experienced as former participate of the Youth In Government (YIG) program. Mr. Travis Stoves (YMCA) who serves as coordinator for all YIG programs at Ramsay, organized, and planned the induction ceremony activities sponsored by the YMCA Youth Center. The YIG club expects to see Ramsay make its mark through building a strong, competitive, and effective YIG club.
