Ryan Shupp, a senior at Cocalico High School, took the Junior Councilperson Oath of Office administered by Mayor Rodney Redcay at Denver Borough’s Jan. 27 meeting.

Junior Councilmen may participate in all business. They cannot vote or attend executive sessions. They have key roles in Denver’s Memorial Day celebration and December Tree Lighting Ceremony.

Shupp served in the same capacity during the 2012-13 year. He opted to be considered for a second term to learn more about local government and community service.

Busy in school, Shupp maintains a 4.0 academic average, was selected to attend the Hugh O’Brian Youth Leadership Seminar (HOBY), and participates in student government, model U.N., LEO Club, Pittsburgh Project and Bible Study. In the community he volunteers at Colonial Lodge Retirement Home.

Describing himself, Shupp says he is “well-organized, able to adapt well to various situations and works well with people of all ages.”

Council members as well as residents who attend the council meetings appreciate Shupp’s informative academic and social updates about events at Cocalico High School.

Attending his first meeting for this school year, Shupp was prepared with an informative school report “just 10 minutes after he was sworn in,” remarked acting council president, Mike Gensemer.

Smiles all around the council chamber indicated a warm welcome for the returning junior council member.
