The Wilson County Republican Party held its semi-monthly meeting on March 21 and, in addition to regular agenda items, Connor Pfeiffer, chairman of the High School Republicans of Texas (HSRT), provided a presentation and guide to starting a high school Republican club.
Connor arrived at the meeting just after returning from Austin, where he traveled to speak to the Texas Congress against a bill regarding RFID tags for high school students. “Our nation is in a time of crisis. We face a $16 trillion national debt, out-of-control spending, and liberal policies that threaten our future. Our livelihoods are at stake and the very idea of the American character and the principles of our Constitution are in peril. Everyone can make a difference by carrying the torch of conservatism, of the Republican Party, and of freedom and liberty to the youth of our state,” he stated.
Connor is a junior at Alamo Heights High School and travels the state encouraging high school students to become civically active by starting clubs in their communities.
There are 18 HSRT clubs in Texas and they can be officially sanctioned by a high school through a teacher sponsor, or privately in a community. Participants not only learn what they can do to preserve their future, but also find avenues to volunteer in their community and participate in and learn about the legislative process.
For more information, email Connor at email@example.com or visit www.hsrtx.org.
