The Greater Vidalia Youth Leadership class held a graduation ceremony on Monday, March 20, at Lyons First Baptist Church to celebrate the end of the 2022-2023 program. The graduation ceremony gives the students the opportunity to show their parents, program sponsors, and the participating school officials what they learned during the program about themselves, the community, and how they can contribute as our future leaders.
During the program the students learn about different business sectors in the community such as agriculture, economic development, healthcare, and community services. They also develop themselves in sessions titled, “Orientation,” “Professional Development,” and “Putting Your Best Foot Forward.”
This year Georgia First Bank awarded two $500 scholarships to Reece Brown and Kate Kennedy for their 200-word essays which detailed how they may help to improve the community.
The Greater Vidalia Chamber shared its gratitude to program Presenting Sponsor Brewton-Parker College and the other graduation event sponsors, The Temples Company, and Georgia First Bank.
Applications are available for next year’s class. If you know a rising Junior or Senior in the community (Toombs or Montgomery Counties) who would benefit from the program, contact Amber O’Connor at ambero@greatervidaliachamber. com for an application.
