Members of the Gonzales Middle School Student Council attended the Youth Legislature for a two-day mock legislative session at the Old State Capitol in Baton Rouge.

During the trip, students wrote and passed laws that were decided upon by a governor and governor’s cabinet that was elected at the session.

Gonzales Middle student Rosa Rodriguez was named the state superintendent of education. Also taking offices were Ronia Singleton, speaker pro-tempore of the House of Representatives; David Boylan and Ann Marie Frisby served in Congress; and Brieonna Mitchell and Carson Butler were press delegates.

The trip was spearheaded by eighth-grade Gonzales Middle School social studies teacher Taylor Ford.
