On Monday, December 11, 2017, Senator Johnny Ray Turner of Prestonsburg gave Floyd County students from Allen Central Middle School a firsthand glimpse of the Kentucky General Assembly through the eyes of a sitting legislator at the Kentucky State Capitol. The students in grades six through eight were participating in the Kentucky Youth Assembly, a three-day experiential learning program in which students serve as part of a model state government. The students were accompanied by KYA advisors and Allen Central teachers Brad Short and Jeremy Hall. Senator Turner, who represents the 29th district, is a retired teacher and coach. He said he is always happy to meet with young people and is especially pleased when they show an interest in state government.
