Jr. Beta Club students competes in leadership summit

Special to the Glades County Democrat/West Glades School

A group of West Glades Jr. Beta Club students traveled to Jekyll Island, Georgia, during the week of March 26, to participate and compete in the student leadership summit. The students gained knowledge of leadership roles and responsibilities, as well as the importance of teamwork. The summit hosted guest speakers Ted Wise and Bill Cordes, who offered lessons in stepping up and becoming a leader. Following the session, the students competed in the Rapid Response Competition along with many other schools. West Glades students did an outstanding job and qualified to compete at the national level this summer. Congratulations on a job well done. Rapid Response Team Members: Harley Collins, Brooke Collins, Madison Kinney, Mya Pagan and Carmen Perez.
