Many of our future political leaders were getting a little wet and wild Monday at Gulf Islands Water Park.

City leaders and members of the youth council from cities all over the state converged at a welcome reception, sponsored by Mississippi Power, Coast Electric Power Association, and the City of Gulfport, at Gulf Islands Water Park. The conference, in addition to treating the students to some local BBQ and fun times, will be teaching kids the importance of city level government in the hopes of grooming future leaders all over the state.

Myles Sharp, a Gulfport City Councilman, says, "The Mayor's Youth Council is designed to get students at the high school level to understand and get involved in municipal politics, and not just politics, but to get into municipal government, I think is a better way to say it."
