Jr. Leadership’s State Government Day

Our Junior Leadership students spent the day at the S.C. State House for 4-H Legislative Day! We appreciate both the Governor and Lt. Governor who took the time to meet with our students Tuesday (March 12) morning!

Don’t forget tomorrow (Friday, March 15) is the deadline for current high school freshman and sophomores who live in or attend school in Florence County to apply for the 2019-2020 Junior Leadership Florence County Class. Public, private and homeschooled students who will be classified as a high school sophomore or junior next school year are eligible.

Junior Leadership Florence County (JLFC) is an eight-month program in which area high school sophomores and juniors are empowered to become trustees of the Florence County community. Throughout the eight months of the program students will learn a variety of valuable leadership skills including time management, community issue awareness, and business ethics. The program also provides training in the area of personal development, skills training, volunteering opportunities and team building. Another benefit of the program is the opportunity to gain new contacts through networking and relationship building.

The program is presented by the Florence County Extension Service, The Greater Florence Chamber of Commerce and Francis Marion University.
