Students Participate in Hispanic Youth Leadership Institute Training

Students Jennifer Barahona, Mersedes Mizhquiri, Evelyn Morales and Tannya Palacios, all members of the East Hampton High School World Language Club, were selected to attend three leadership training sessions for the Angelo del Toro Puerto Rican/Hispanic Youth Leadership Institute.

The students met earlier this week with New York State Assemblyman Phil Ramos (Assembly District 6), who is the first Hispanic assemblyman in a New York State region outside of New York City.

After the training sessions, two of the students will travel to Albany with fellow student delegates from around New York to participate in a mock assembly, where they will argue and vote for bills currently under consideration in the Assembly.
