Political Science student appointed to governor's advisory board

In November 2008, Governer Bobby Jindal appointed political science major David Zoller to the Louisiana Governor's Advisory Board of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention. Zoller, who is a senator in the Loyola University Student Government Association and president of the Political Science Department Honor Society, will serve as a youth worker for the governor's advisory board

The purpose of the advisory board is to strengthen the accountability and rehabilitation of juveniles already found guilty of felonies in Louisiana and to prevent at-risk youth from committing crimes.

According to statute, the board must consist of 15 to 33 gubernatorial appointees, including one elected official and representatives of law enforcement, juvenile justice agencies, public and nonprofit agencies involved in juvenile delinquency treatment, volunteers who work with delinquents or potential delinquents, youth workers, and people with special knowledge concerning youth-related problems.
