Two high school students from St. Tammany Parish are among the 31 members of the 2023-24 Louisiana Legislative Youth Advisory Council and will work together over the next year in an effort to influence the legislative process and make the state a better place for young people.

The year's council includes Chance McComiskey, of Christ Episcopal School, and Krista Miller, from Mandeville High School, both representing the First Congressional District.

Members of the council are selected from around the state and must display a strong interest in civic involvement and leadership. These 31 students are dynamic, well-rounded individuals that go through a rigorous selection process.
