Nationally known speakers led sessions on stress management, leadership wellness, role modeling, creativity, personal communications, marketing and team-building. Each workshop allowed participants the opportunity to engage in hands-on learning experiences while developing citizenship and leadership skills.
The conference culminated on Sunday by delegates taking part in the conclusion of the statewide "Food Check-Out Day" service project. Counties across the state collected aluminum pop tabs, which were donated to Ronald McDonald House of Danville, for recycling in exchange for funds that benefit the "home-away-from-home" for families with hospitalized children.
