A pair eleventh-graders will represent High Point Academy Spartanburg for the Spartanburg Chamber’s Junior Leadership program. Congratulations to juniors Hannah Lee and Donovan Sims.
This is a nine-month program where high school juniors are empowered to become trustees of the Spartanburg community. Throughout the program, students will learn a variety of valuable leadership skills, including time management, community issue awareness, and business ethics. The program also provides training in the area of personal development, skills training, volunteering opportunities, and team building.
Local colleges, universities, and businesses partner with the chamber to provide professional personnel, facilities and other aspects of the sessions throughout the school year. The Spartanburg Parks Commission assists in planning and coordinating the sessions with the support of Chamber staff. Program leadership and staff attend all activities, functions, and meetings pertaining to the program. On average, 45 students participate in the program each year.
