York, Clover students chosen for leadership program
The Council of Chambers of York County announces the selection of participants for the Youth Leadership York County Class of 2014.
The youth leadership program or “YouLead” is an eight-month experience designed for high school students from public and private schools in York County. Besides developing leadership skills, YouLead participants will meet local and state government officials, tour area businesses with local industry leaders, volunteer with York County service agencies and gain a greater understanding of the community they call home.
Nearly 50 students from eight York County schools submitted applications for the program, and finalists participated in interviews held by representatives from area businesses.
Through the program, organizers aim to not only teach leadership skills, but to also encourage the students to further their education and apply their own life experiences as they live, work and become active members of our growing York County community.
Students selected from York and Clover are: David Kowalczyk and Rachel Park from Clover High School; and Julie Comer, Morgan Kuczler, Carrie Lee Lancaster and Matthew Ransom from York Comprehensive High School,
The Council of Chambers is made up of the York County Regional Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with the Greater Clover, Greater York and Lake Wylie chambers of commerce. For more information, call 803-324-7500.
