Our younger generation is in need of our encouragement and guidance because they are 100 percent of our future”, said Councilman Andrews.
The class facilitator, Nancy Lee, has taught the leadership class internationally. She is a licensed teacher for the “Path 4 Teens” program and the well-known “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens”. Being a teenager is both wonderful and challenging.
