Senior to Represent Tully at Syracuse Delegation

Senior Emerson Santos has been a star student and athlete here at Tully since emigrating here from Guatemala. He was recently accepted to participate in the Puerto Rican Hispanic Youth Leadership Institute representing Tully under the Syracuse Delegation. This is an incredible opportunity for Emerson to learn and strengthen Hispanic and Latino influence in public policy. He will participate in multiple trainings on topics like the legislative process, creating and presenting persuasive arguments, and understanding parliamentary procedures. He will then travel to Albany and participate in a MOCK Assembly, where students will debate legislative bills in the NYS Assembly Chambers. Not only is Emerson participating in PRHYLI, he is also a Seal of Biliteracy Candidate this year and will be proving his literacy skills in both English and Spanish. Way to go, Emerson!
