Youth representatives sought for Farragut committees

The Town of Farragut is always looking for a fresh perspective. If you’re a civic-minded high school junior or senior who lives in the Farragut area, we want you to share your ideas by participating in a Town committee!

The Board of Mayor and Aldermen recognizes that young citizens play a vital role in the Town. That’s why many Farragut committees have a slot for a youth representative. The following committees have openings for a youth member beginning in July: Arts & Beautification Committee, Farragut Museum Committee, Farragut Education Relations Committee, Farragut Tourism/Visitor Advisory Committee, Municipal Planning Commission, Parks and Athletics Council, Stormwater Advisory Council and Visual Resources Review Board.

To learn more about each committee and apply, visit townoffarragut.org/youth. A letter of recommendation from a principal, teacher or guidance counselor is required. Private and home-schooled students are welcome to apply. The application deadline is Friday, March 15.

Candidates must have reliable transportation to and from the meetings and will be expected to attend all scheduled meetings. Youth representatives will take part in discussions and interact with the fellow committee members, but do not have a formal vote due to legal constraints. Selected candidates will serve from July 2019-June 2020 in correspondence with the Town’s fiscal year.

For more information about youth representatives on Farragut committees, contact Jennifer Hatmaker at jhatmaker@townoffarragut.org or 218-3363.

Incorporated in 1980, the Town of Farragut has top schools, safe neighborhoods and high development standards, making it one of the best places to live in the Southeast.
