In 2000, my predecessor Delegate Kris Amundson started her Young Leaders Program in partnership with Cox Communications. The program introduced some of the top students from 44th District high schools to state government to encourage them to continue their involvement in the state and their community.
The program is such a success and such a good idea, I decided that it needs a better name and I could not think of a better person to name it after other than it's founder. Starting this year, we are going to call this program The Amundson Institute in honor of Former Delegate Kris Amundson.
