Indianola High School students are chosen to serve on the new council and have the unique opportunity to learn how government works, represent the youth in our community, and become actively involved with community projects and activities.
Participation on the council offers valuable leadership experience and will involve close interaction with the Mayor, City Council, and members of the community in working toward the betterment of Indianola.
