COLUMBUS, Ind. — Sarah Weaver gained skills in resume writing, interviewing for jobs and leadership before she graduated in June from Columbus East High School.
She learned those lessons while participating in Youth Leadership Bartholomew County, a 12-year-old program of the Columbus Service League that fosters growth of the county's future leaders by rewarding academic accomplishments and encouraging academic discipline.
A year has passed since Weaver, a freshman at Indiana University who is pursuing a degree in special education, finished in second place and won $1,000 at the annual Leadership Conference and Awards Ceremony for proving herself as one of the county's best. Now, a new group of 192 high school seniors with at least a B-plus GPA are ready to be recognized for their accomplishments at this year's version of that invitation-only ceremony Sept. 16 at the Clarion Hotel in Columbus.
Please read an upcoming edition of The Republic for more information.
