    What a great story! I’ll have to ask my son, local chapter chief, if he knows Jeremy and to congratulate him if so. Thanks for posting this story.

    I agree. I enjoy reading about young folks being elected to school boards, city councils, etc. I think all of these governing bodies need a youth perspective at times.
