The Mason G. Smoak Foundation is announcing the members of Youth Leadership Highlands Class II. The program is a year-long leadership program for high school students in Highlands County. The group also recently conducted an orientation meeting for the class that allowed them to meet the rest of the class and learn more about the program.
This program is designed to expose participants to interpersonal leadership abilities, build leadership competencies like public speaking and decision-making; while simultaneously creating awareness for the need of philanthropy, community service, and civic participation in the lives of Highlands County citizens.
