Miss Tennessee Jr. Teen Debates Tennessee Legislature!

The Debate ’08 Youth Forum was held in Nashville on Tuesday, October 7, 2008. Eight 4-H members from across the state, including the 2008 National American Miss Tennessee Jr. Teen, Jaclyn Torento, gathered at Legislative Plaza in Nashville for a state wide youth forum and debate, to have their unique voices and concerns heard. They discussed issues concerning youth including, childhood disease, military service, and education. The panel was made up of members of the Tennessee Commission on Children and Youth.

I am so proud of all the hard work that Jaclyn is doing in her community and state. 

Have a great weekend!
