Texas Governor Rick Perry welcomes students to State's first NRA YES event
Arlington, Texas - NRA's Youth Education Summit (YES) brings more than forty students from across the United States to Washington, DC. While here in the nation's capital, they visit with political leaders, take part in seminars with NRA staff, tour the monuments and learn what it truly means to be an American citizen.
There are a number ways for the kids to earn a spot on the YES bandwagon. Sometimes a stellar application is all it takes. Maybe they find a way to wrangle up a recommendation from an NRA Board Member or elected official. Or the teens are chosen based on their performance at a state YES event.
Texas is one of those states that holds their own YES event ... at least they are now. Thanks to the hard work of South Texas Field Representative Liz Foley, the little Lone Stars were treated to the first Texas YES down in Austin.
