Teen-Age Republicans

Click for HCTARS Membership Application

The Harrison County Teenage Republicans is a group of middle and high school students interested in promoting the Republican party in Harrison County. For students who believe in Republican values, this club is an excellent choice. TARs students help to campaign for Republican leaders in the political world and encourage people of voting age in the community to vote. Students are able to better understand the Republican party's point of view on moral, ethical, domestic, and foreign issues; as well as, better understand the politics of today. With a better understanding of the government and how it is run on a daily basis, students are more apt to get involved in the running of our great nation. Many TARs students have gone on to become leaders in college and society.
