The sun was just barely coming up when the Y-Club kids loaded up the school bus and headed to Louisville, Kentucky on Sunday, November 8th. The long bus ride was all worth it though! After what felt like an eternity, the bus pulled in to the Crowne Plaza. They unloaded the bus to start the first day of KYA. While the bill sponsors got prepared to present their bill, tension and nervousness were definitely lingering as they stepped up to the podium. After three long agonizing, stressful, and amazing minutes crept by, the delegates ranked the bill. The bill sponsors were finished for the first day. General Assembly then met to discuss the top ranked bills. Although Dalton Gregory didn't advance to be the conference's governor and only one of our bills were passed, everyone was proud of our accomplishments. The next day was mostly the same; getting up at the crack of dawn, debating bills, and long meetings. As the day dragged on, every delegate had only one thing on their mind; the mixer! The mixer is a time to let go of all the problems you had during the conference and have a great time with music, games, karaoke, and amazing friends, new and old! Before the members knew it, it was another early morning! But, this morning was different, they were going home. Christian Derryberry, Makenzie Kerney, Abbi Young, Sydney Albertson, Haleigh Irwin, and the CCMS Y-Club all got awards! We were all very, very excited! As we said goodbye, some of us for the last time, we felt like we had accomplished a whole lot! This was the end to this years KYA conference!
> As part of Y-Club, we do service projects throughout the school year, recycling being one of them. We applied for a grant to help fund the recycling bins we needed badly! As a result of getting the grant, we, of course, celebrated! On Friday 13th, the whole school gathered in the gym for a Pride Rally! The theme was Wall-E. Y-Club chose this theme because if we do not start recycling, Wall-E's World will become ours! We had Scotty the Dog and Wall-E there to help get the crowd fired up! And, boy, the crowd was fired up, yelling in favor of which team that wanted to win the recycling relay race! We talked and played a game, giving away recycled pencils made of blue jeans and money, as prizes! As they closed it out, they stressed the importance of recycling because, as much as Wall-E's world sounds exciting, none of us would want to live there! So join the Y-Club members and take a stand for a better Earth! Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle!

Y-Club Participates in the Lake Cumberland Pride Clean Up
As a new school year begins, the CCMS Y-Club gets an early lead on volunteering. On Saturday September 19th, 16 members of the club meet at Grider Hill Dock at 8:45 a.m. They grabbed their gloves and trash bags and headed out to help clean up Lake Cumberland. They picked up trash for 3 hours around the lake. They competed for grant money to help fund the Y-Club. They came in 1st place in the small group category. They picked up 6 full bags of trash! Most of the things were the same, the strangest objects they found was an air mattress floating in some sticks and a pair of socks. Although they competed for grant money, the students learned that keeping the environment and safe is a very important thing!
