Jessai Flores, Editor

Grand Prairie Mayor Ron Jensen met with upwards of 50 GPISD students for the first meeting of the 2018-2019 Mayor’s Teen Council on October 5th, 2018.

Started in 2015, the Teen Council was a student group led by the City of Grand Prairie in an effort to educate high-achieving students with interests in public service about the functions of local government.

During the October 5th meeting, students were introduced to Mr. Jensen at The Epic. Later the students learned about the activities that Mr. Jensen had planned for 2018 and 2019. At the end of the meeting, the students were treated to a photo op with the mayor.

The next Teen Council Meeting is scheduled for November.
