It was a changing of the guard for the College Station Place 4 City Council seat as political newcomer Katy-Marie Lyles was sworn in on Monday.
A full house greeted the newest member of the council who happens to be celebrating her 25th birthday as she took her seat next to College Station Mayor Ben White.
Lyles says she's excited about her opportunity and will be spending the next few days getting a feel for her new position.
"It's going to be mostly me being quiet, soaking it all in, and doing my best to serve. Knowing I know a lot, but realizing I don't know everything and it's a learning experience so I'm looking forward to it," said Lyles.
Lyles replaces Lynn McIlhaney who has been on the council for more than two decades.
