The Shelby County Chamber of Commerce puts on a program for our sophomores called the Young Leaders where students participate in day-long, monthly field trips during their sophomore year in high school to local businesses and organizations to learn more about Shelby County, interact with community and business leaders and their peers, and develop the skills needed to become the leaders of the future. Each month their field trip will focus on a different sector of Shelby County such as tourism, healthcare, manufacturing, and agriculture – to name a few. Students will meet leaders in those sectors and learn how each area contributes to life in Shelby County. Participants the end of them program, students will have acquired a broad overview of Shelby County. Participation is open to public, private and homeschool students. A group 21 students were selected through a competitive application process that evaluates academic achievement, community service and contributions, understanding of a desire to participate in the program and letters of recommendation.
