Aucilla Christian Academy had the pleasure of sending two of their students to Gainesville for the Young Leaders Conference recently. Sophomores Hunter Horne of Monticello and Cole Davis of Madison attended the conference held from Jan. 27-29.
The weekend consisted of a strict schedule of workshops that covered what it takes to be a leader.
However, it wasn’t all work and no play, students were able to enjoy a dance social and a game night in the hotel ballroom. Cole Davis stated that his favorite workshop was one that built community and trust with the other students through an obstacle course. It really challenged him to work as a team but to also build trusting relationships with his peers.
Upon being interviewed about their weekend, both students agreed that they would want to attend the conference again next year. Hunter’s take home message from the weekend was, “Don’t follow the crowd, do what’s right even if you are the only one doing it.” Overall the two found the weekend to be very rewarding and made lasting friendships.
Aucilla Christian Academy is very proud to have had participants at the conference and look forward to sending more students again next year.
