What is Junior Leadership?


    Junior Leadership is a program in which students are selected to participate from all across Kershaw County. It is a very respected program, due to the fact that the students are all being recognized for the leadership traits they exhibit in their schools, communities, and lives. The goal of the program is to hone these unique qualities, in order to assist each young man or woman achieve their full potential as a leader. The program is very prestigious, and is competitive in terms of trying to be picked for one of the thirty-two spots. It is an honor to be selected by the adults leaders in our community, and the opportunity to further our skills is much appreciated.

     What are my expectations for the program and the upcoming year?
My expectations for the Junior Leadership program and for this upcoming year are very simple. First, I would like to refine the style and traits of leadership that I have picked up over the last couple of years. Second, I would like to meet and become friends with peers my own age that I do not normally get to see or speak to on a daily basis. Lastly, I would like to focus on loosening up as a person, and be able to talk to others without becoming shy or self-conscious. I feel that the program will help me vastly in all three of these areas and help me work towards becoming a better person and leader. I am looking forward to stepping into a very successful future as a young man.
