Youth Leadership 2010 accepting nominations

Published 2:47 pm Tuesday, October 27, 2009

Your chamber, along with the Leadership Decatur County program, will be sponsoring the 12th Annual Youth Leadership Program this January.

The Youth Leadership Steering Committee, chaired by Charlotte Howard, is now taking nominations for this program. Nominees must be a sophomore or junior at either Bainbridge High School, Grace Christian Academy or home-schooled in Decatur County.

The Decatur County Youth Leadership program is designed to develop leadership skills, offer interaction opportunities in our county, and increase awareness of community issues, needs and resources.

Participants will be expected to attend an overnight retreat along with six additional classes designed by the Fanning Leadership Center. The class will have the opportunity to meet and learn all about our local government, health care and other related services. They will also have an opportunity to tour several of our local industries.

The classes usually meet on Monday evenings at Bainbridge College.

If you would like to nominate a student for this wonderful program, just call the Chamber at 246-4774 and give their name and address so we can follow up with an application.

Deadline for nominations is Tuesday, Nov. 3.
