Superior’s delegation to the League of Arizona Cities and Towns.

  The Superior Town Council added a small line item to their budget this year of $5,000 to offer Parks and Recreation activities to offer some activities and programs for the community.  The activities are being coordinated in partnership with the Superior Junior-Senior High School Student Councils. 

  To help further their leadership abilities the Superior High School Student Body Leadership was invited to attend a daylong training during the League of Arizona Cities and Towns Conference in Tucson last week.

  Attending on behalf of the Student Council were Naomi Bo Hing, Matthew Hernandez, Sivanna Lopez, Amber Alonzo and Cassandra Drennan. These students work alongside their Junior High counterparts and Superior Town Staff and Council to plan activities.  During the conference, the student leaders learned the importance of community involvement, leadership and networked with other youth councils from throughout the state.

  To date the students have been active in planning many of the activities for Fourth of July; they hosted a Back to School Bash at the Superior Swimming Pool; and they have other events coming up.  The student leaders have also set a goal of improving the basketball courts at the US 60 Park.  Valerie Garcia-Denogean also provides support to the student leadership groups.

  The funding for the Community Parks and Recreation program was donated to the Town through an agreement with Resolution Copper.  Attending the annual conference this year were: Mayor Mila Besich-Lira, Councilmemebers Bruce Armitage, Steve Estatico, Olga Lopez and Vanessa Navarrette and Town Manager Todd Pryor.
