On Tuesday, February 21st, the International Youth Fellowship of Temple City High School hosted a student leadership round table meeting with the mayor, Tom Chavez.

The meeting, which took place at the high school during lunch, was represented by students of all the different grades.

It commenced with information concerning the IYF’s various programs, such as their English Camp 5k run, Cultural Expo, and World Camp The English camp, which was this past weekend, took place in Tecate, Mexico. The informational video about the trip was followed by a special choreography by the Righteous Stars, a performing group from Korea.

Students participating in the discussion gave their opinions on topics such as time management, leadership, and college admission. In an open panel, students voiced their ideas and suggestions about factors such as organization and stress. The participants would share their personal experiences and advice in order to further the meeting.

“I suggest a timer to avoid procrastination,” Junior Yinting Huang said during the meeting. “It makes it easier to stay on task.”

The meeting spanned throughout the entire lunch period, as the students gave optimal advice involving these topics. As the meeting progressed, the representatives gave tips in a lighthearted and humorous manner.

“Here, I have 101 ways to prevent stress,” said Mayor Chavez. “But I don’t think we’ll have time for them, so I’ll just share one instead.”

With input and advice from the Mayor, the students were able to provide their insight for better studying and success.
