The Mayor’s Youth Council (MYC) is under the direction of Mayor James Marino, Vice Mayor Lillie Junkins and Councilmember Jerry Riffle, with the assistance of City Clerk Annette Wright. The program is open to any student in the 9th, 10th, 11th or 12th grades who attends a city school: Notre Dame, Liberty, RCB, Emmanuel Christian or is home-schooled and resides in the Clarksburg city limits.
