Over the weekend of October 17-18, 2009, the Leadership Institute held a Youth Leadership School in College Station, Texas. Forty-three students attended from colleges such as Baylor, Texas State, TCU, Texas A&M. Fernando Trevino of Del Rio, Texas, stated “I honestly feel that I learned more this weekend than I had in the time I spent as a congressional intern, county co-chair, and volunteer.”
A number of TEA Party activists from San Antonio also attended the training. The night before the training, many of the YLS students protested Socialized Medicine at President Obama’s speech in College Station.
