Four Bellefontaine High School students have important leadership roles this school year.

Seniors Jack Hutchins and Kirsten Hand along with juniors Alexis Buffkin and Ashton Carey were selected to serve on Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost’s Teen Ambassador Board.

The ambassadors enjoyed a tour of the Ohio Statehouse on Monday.

The mission of the Teen Ambassador Board is to provide Ohio’s future leaders with an inside look at Ohio law and government. The board consists of high school students from around the state.

Applicants selected serve a one-year term and convene twice in Columbus during their tenure on the board. Members will advise the Attorney General's office on issues relating to teens and work with their peers to develop solutions to those issues. Students will be placed into small groups, advised by an assistant attorney general. Members will attend presentations on a wide variety of topics.

Students will also have the opportunity to meet with Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost, attend events around the state throughout the year, visit the Columbus and regional offices, interact with assistant attorneys general, and hear from various elected officials.
