A meeting of the minds was held at Del Mar College's West Campus on Saturday. Students representing ten high schools in seven counties gathered for the very first South Texas Youth Congress. They talked about the different issues they see in our communities and schools and brainstormed on ways to make a difference.

Carolina Barron said, "we focused a lot on education, specifically college education, discussed programs where students encounter real world jobs and experiences."

The goal is to teach these students leadership skills and to help them become more successful.
