Dear Students, Parents, Teachers & Friends of Education,

21st Century Leader

Holly McCauley, a Sophomore at Apalachee High School, was selected to attend the Turner Voices Youth Media Institute this summer through 21st Century Leaders. She was one of only 75 students selected from the state of Georgia after completing a rigorous application and interview process. Holly will be spending a week in June on the campus of Georgia Tech Institute interacting with her peers, building relationships, networking and learning how to improve her leadership skills.
