Cameron Coleman Selected for 21st Century Leaders Program
SECCA Energy Pathway student and a junior at Montgomery County High School Cameron Coleman was selected to participate in the 21st Century Leaders Program. With Energy Pathway Instructor Dr. Kip Hart’s encouragement, Coleman applied for the summer institute. With the pandemic affecting summer activities, the event was held online. Coleman participated in the EarthCare: Leadership Challenge sponsored by the Georgia Power Foundation. Building on the benefits of his initial experience, Coleman applied to represent 21st Century Leaders as a member of the 21CL Youth Ambassadors. He was one of 15 chosen statewide because of his commitment to leadership and desire to serve and grow as an Ambassador for 21st Century Leaders. The Ambassadors represent more than 800 Georgia high school students.
As a Youth Ambassador for the 2020-2021 school year, he will be serving from September 2020 until May 2021. The Ambassadors’ main focus will be in the areas of Service & Student Outreach, Collaboration, Communication and Representation. The Youth Ambassadors are motivated and diverse students from across the state of Georgia who are committed to inspiring one another to lead. They represent the distinct ideas, opinions, attitudes, knowledge, and actions of exemplary leaders as a collective body.
Dr. Hart noted, “Cameron is an active student, in and out of the classroom. He actively seeks to understand the content he is studying. Cameron will benefit from this program by gaining new experiences, expanding his leadership skills, and actively engaging with other students from across Georgia.”
