Campbellsville High School students were honored with several awards at the Kentucky Youth Assembly session on November 20-22, 2016.

The school's Kentucky YMCA Youth Association chapter attended the annual program, which allows students to serve as a part of a model state government.


CHS junior Bryce Richardson won outstanding speaker and outstanding delegate awards.

The CHS group's bill, authored by sophomores Myles Murrell, Jackson Hinton and Glenn Lamer, was signed into law.

The bill was titled "An act to legalize medical cannabis to be prescribed by physicians to patients."

The measure proposed legalization of medical cannabis to reduce the cost of treatments and the negative use of opiate pain medicines for diseases such as seizure disorders, epilepsy, dementia, cancer and others.

The bill was highly ranked and passed the House and Senate with little opposition, and was signed into law by the governor.

According to KYA sponsor Susan Dabney, this is the first time in more than 10 years that the CHS KYA group has had a bill signed into law.

Overall, the CHS group won a Delegation of Excellence award for outstanding performance, enthusiasm, compliance to the guidelines and positive interaction with other delegations.

CHS freshman Gavin Johnson ran for office in the Bluegrass section of the convention. Bluegrass is for freshman only, and all the votes come from the freshman group.

Bluegrass is a separate group designed to give incoming freshman a platform and to become familiar with the KYA program.

Jeremiah Jackson, a sophomore, was part of the Media Corps, and sophomores Brandon Greer and Spencer Swafford served as parliamentarians.

KYA offers students the opportunity to learn about a wide variety of issues, develop critical thinking skills and articulate their beliefs while engaging constructively with their peers from around the Commonwealth.
