Friday, September 14, 2018
Twenty-three young people from Bradley Central, Cleveland and Walker Valley High Schools and Tennessee Christian Preparatory School began their Youth Leadership Class of 2018-19 experience. The Youth Leadership program encompasses eight months and gives the students opportunities to learn about the local economy, heritage and tourism, city and county government and services and health and human services. They also experience a day in Nashville to learn about state government.
“The class began their trips around the community recently and learned about our local economy.
They visited several businesses and industries,” Sherry Crye, youth leadership coordinator, said about the 2018-19 class. “They were able to meet some of our local business leaders and see them in action. This will also teach them the importance of how they will contribute as future leaders in our community.”
Members of 2018-19 Youth Leadership class from Bradley Central High School are Gabby Bennett, Brynna Frakes, Hannah Lombard, Courtney Roberts, Shelby Satterfield, Kierstyn Viola, Anna Walker, Jackson Walker and Morgan Warner.
