Bath County Middle School char- tered Kentucky YMCA Youth As- sociation, Inc., or Co-Ed Y, last school year. This year, between 35 and 45 students participated in the organization. Co-Ed Y, is an acaden'aic organi- zation. It's about school and community service; leadership; and becoming part of the solution--not the prob- lem. The organization is not funded by the school system, instead fi- nancial assistance comes from Ky YMCA, the Federal Department of Justice and the Appalachian Re- gional Commission. The club must also raise their own bus money and students pay for their own meals, etc. BCMS Co-Ed Y participates in the Junior Kentucky United Na- tions Assembly, held once a year. The Assembly leaves the law- making and ruling of the world to teen-agers across the state. This year it was held March 16- 18 at the Executive West Hotel, in Louisville. BCMS Co-Ed Y represented the nations of St. Lucia and St.' Kitts. Displays for the two nations were made by advisors Tina Marcum and Ann Garrison and Co-Ed Y members. "Everyone helped," said Garri- son, "teachers,janitors; it was atrue school and community effort." One proposal was given, by Co- Ed Y members, for each country. Proposals are voted on first and then ranked. The proposal for St. Lucia was delivered by students Randi Shrout (lead proposal au- thor), Michelle Williams, Jarrod Hunt and David Johns. Their pro- posal was ranked twice; a feat that is hard to do! Their proposal did not pass, however. The proposal for St. Kitts was delivered by students Megan Crouch, Bethany Wells and Andy Lough. This proposal won twice (ranked both times), was passed by the General Assembly and was a 1099 Indian Mound Drive Colony Shoppes, Mt.
