Jr. Leadership Preble County program under way
Eighteen Preble County students are getting the opportunity to learn more about themselves, their community, and what they can offer the world thanks to the brand-new Junior Leadership Preble County program.
The program, which kicked off with its first session on Friday, Dec. 13, 2019, gives participants the chance to find out what it means to have grit, what their passion is, and learn where they can go if they persevere. This year’s theme, “Life is an Amazing Race,” embodies the curriculum which will take the students through learning experiences a normal day at school will not normally provide, according to organizers. The Junior Leadership Preble County curriculum runs concurrent with the academic school year and includes four full days of programming. Free to the students, the Junior Leadership Preble County program is currently provided through the Leadership Preble County funding of Kettering Health & the Grandview Foundation, Preble County Development Partnership and Indiana University East.
