Jr. Leadership seeking followers on Instagram

One of the class projects for a group of high school juniors in this year’s Jr. Leadership Program has been charged with creating awareness within their schools and among their classmates about what Jr, Leadership is and the benefits of becoming part of the program.

To this effort, they have created an Instagram account to capture and post videos and photographs of the activities they are participating in on their class days.  Please help this group of students by following Jr. Leadership on Instagram at jr_leadership_medina_county.

Upcoming Leadership Medina County Awareness Events

This year we’ve decided to paint Medina County with multiple events to help promote all of our programs.  We will host the following awareness events and bring LMC to your neighborhoods.

Please mark your calendar with these dates and plan to attend at least one of these events.  We’re also asking alumni to bring at least one person who they think would be a good candidate for any of our programs.  Emerging and Signature program events will be held together.  Jr. Leadership will host their first awareness event and we will be inviting school administrators and parents to find out more about the program.  If you know a high school student who would be a good candidate for Jr. Leadership, please invite their parents to attend the awareness event in March.
