Youth Leadership Henry is a program sponsored by the Henry County Chamber of Commerce that identifies and develops emerging leaders and gives them an environment in which they learn and grow. These students meet regularly throughout the year to learn about the needs of Henry County from local leaders, professionals, and teachers in their community.

On Tuesday, February 5th, these young leaders visited my colleagues and me at the Capitol building. We had the pleasure of showing students around the Capitol and speaking to them about what we do as lawmakers to meet the needs of our communities. Talking with these students was very encouraging, and they seemed to enjoy getting an up-close look of local government. I enjoyed seeing young people who are interested in being aware of the issues of their community and wanting to do something about it. They are setting a terrific example to their peers and showing them that they don’t have to wait until after school to begin taking the initiative to solve problems.

If you are interested in your student applying for this program in the fall, Visit the Youth Leadership Henry website. Take a look at their Facebook page as well to see some photos of their excursions.
