MONROVIA – If 29 Monrovia teenagers from the Santa Anita YMCA Youth and Government program had their way, California high school students would see a slight modification to their curriculum in the near future. The YMCA mock legislators will introduce a bill at the 58th Annual Model Legislature and Court Program that, if passed by the real state government, would amend the state education code. The bill to be presented at the Feb.23-25 conference is titled, “Emergency Preparedness Orientation and Education,” inspired by the events that followed Hurricane Katrina, and would require that health curricula include instruction that would prepare students for emergencies created by earthquakes, hurricanes, floods and wildfires, to name a few. “We want to be able to help people if we had to deal with a natural disaster in California,” said Ashley Dunn, 17. “I think it has a good possibility of being passed because it is so relevant,” said Jennifer Postlewaite, the YMCA’s youth and family program director. Theimer, Dunn and their fellow delegates have spent the past six months deciding on a bill, drafting the bill, and selecting “mock” governmental positions. This is the second year Santa Anita has sent a delegation, which is one of the smaller groups going to Sacramento. “We are just big enough to be powerful.” Dunn said. bridget.schinnerer@sgvn.com (626)962-8811, Ext.2201last_img read more
