WASHINGTON, D.C. – This weekend, U.S. Congressman Sam Johnson’s (TX-03) final Congressional Youth Advisory Council (CYAC) kicked off its first meeting of the school year with a session centered on law enforcement and the team effort between local, state, and federal partners. Guest speakers included District Attorney Greg Willis and Collin County Sheriff Jim Skinner, who discussed their roles in keeping North Texas safe. Students concluded the day with a tour of the Collin County Jail.
“The students in this final CYAC class are a great group of young leaders, and they started off the school year strong with a session on the importance of teamwork,” said Johnson. “Whether it’s a class project, local law enforcement, or keeping our nation secure, it’s important to understand and appreciate the roles different people play in the success of their mission. I thank our guest speakers, DA Willis and Sheriff Skinner, for discussing their roles in keeping our community safe. Collin County is lucky to have them. And I look forward to the year ahead with this CYAC class – we’ve got some exciting things lined up and I know these students will do an outstanding job!”
