A contingent of 15 Pasadena High students traveled to Austin last week to participate in Youth in Action Day.
Students made presentations and served as advocates for their school. They spoke to two legislators about issues ranging from pending state budget cuts to pollution. They received positive feedback from mentors and their peers, who attended from various locations across Texas.
The students accompanied by faculty members Lisa Cortez, Cirilo Ojeda and Christian Sanchez.
Attending were Noe Munoz, Leticia Meza, Jonathan Castrejon, Mayte Herrera, Maricarmen Medina, Emmanuel Quiroz, Yadira Aguilar, Americo Salinas, David Chitica, Yadira Trujillo, Jackeline Gonzalez, Maria Perez, Mariana Alfaro, Jaqueline Cardenas and Armando Rangel.
