Kentucky Youth Salute

You must excuse me while I do a little bragging on my 16 year old daughter, Christine.

Recently, on the website Bluegrass Mom, I wrote about my dauther applying for the Youth Leadership Program. She was accepted into this program and has been working hard with community leaders to implement strong leadership values among teenagers.

Today we learned she has also been nominated for and accepted into the Kentucky Youth Salute. The Youth Salute is conducted annually through the National Council on Youth Leadership in cooperation with the Central Kentucky Council on Youth Leadership. Students must be nominated by their high school counselors, teachers, principals and other community leaders to participate in Youth Salute. All nominees must be high school juniors at the time they are nominated, have at least a 3.0 grade-point average and have been elected to at least two leadership positions in a school, religious or community sponsored organization during the past two years.

Sometime during the coming spring, her photographs will be on display at the Fayette Mall with all the other recipents. I'll keep you updated on when this will happen.

Needless to say, my hubby and I are so proud of our baby!
