Youth Leadership FDL Graduates

The Fond du Lac Area Association of Commerce recently graduated the Youth Leadership Class of 2015-2016. Twenty-two students from Campbellsport, Fond du Lac, Horace Mann, Laconia, Lomira and Oakfield High Schools, as well as St. Mary’s Springs Academy and Winnebago Lutheran Academy participated this year. The program was created ten years ago for students to gain a greater knowledge about their community; develop strong leadership skills; and gain more self and social awareness in order to make a positive difference in the quality of community life.
