Do you ever wish you could make a difference in state government and help shape positive changes in our communities?  Chris Zheng is a senior at Cherry Creek High School who is making a difference when it comes to the laws in Colorado.  He is one of 40 students who makes up the Colorado Youth Advisory Council and meets regularly with legislators on important issues affecting our young people.  Chris has made it his mission to help prevent teen suicides, and was appointed last year as the only “non-adult” member to Governor John Hickenlooper’s Suicide Prevention Commission.
