Chief Peters is excited to announce that Lily DeSpain has been selected to the Springdale Youth Council! Chief Peters nominated her and will serve as her mentor over the next 8 month during this prestigious program. The Youth Council is a program for young adults to engage with the local government. They receive mentoring from city officials, participate in community service that benefits Springdale residents, and play an active role in addressing issues that affect young people in our community. Lily is a Hass Hall Scholar with a 4.0 GPA, she is president of the Junior Honors Society, and is a member of the swim and the robotics teams. She also is very involved with the community and volunteers with several nonprofit groups.
