Press Release

Rep. Pete Olson (TX-22) recently hosted a session of the 22nd District's Congressional Youth Advisory Council (CYAC). The CYAC is a select group of high school students that meet with Congressman Olson to discuss various issues - this session focused on how Congress works with other agencies and some of interesting fields available in the Houston region. Guest speakers of this session included: Captain Brian Penoyer, United States Coast Guard, Roger Guenther, Port of Houston Authority, and NASA Astronaut Lee Morin.

“Each session on CYAC is a new opportunity to engage our students and get theme excited about the great career opportunities right here in the Houston region,” Rep. Olson said. “We are blessed to have NASA’s Johnson Space Center in our backyard, a strong military presence and one of the largest ports in the world calls Houston home. It’s great to see these kids learning about the industries that employ our communities and hopefully spark a career interest as well. I’m proud of our CYAC students and grateful we have such great community leaders willing to share their knowledge with the next generation of leaders.”
