Trace Bouldin, 9, enjoys YSI so much, he attended both weeks for the learning and fun experiences. The morning at Gilley Pool was a highlight for many, before lunch and on to other activities.
For 33 years, area youth have had the opportunity to participate in the Young Scholars Institute, utilizing the educational avenue to broaden their horizons and learn more about their community. This year was no different with organizers using a STEAM theme with science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics all integrated into the curriculum. Over a two-week period, approximately 600 students, 18 staff members and 14 volunteer youth all participate in the activities.
