Each year youth throughout the world participate in the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards Program which brings outstanding students together to develop their leadership skills.  One of the Programs is held each June at the Brevard Music Center.  Area students are selected based on their leadership potential to attend the one week course.  In addition to leadership workshops, the students participate in many different sporting and outdoor events which provide an opportunity to make many new friends from throughout western North Carolina.  At a meeting of the local Rotary Club recently, Polk County High School students Heber Najera, Allie Clayton and Madison Alexander spoke about their experiences while attending the leadership camp in Brevard.  They are pictured along with Rob Webb of the Rotary Club of Brevard.
