Local youth participate in Youth Leadership Conference

Eleven local high school seniors recently completed a five-day Youth Leadership Conference sponsored by the Hill Country chapter of the Military Order of the World Wars, aboard the USS Lexington in Corpus Christi.

The students participated in activities to learn leadership, patriotism and the American enterprise system through a combination of presentations, student exercises and workshops.

Students also participated in a mock trial conducted by the judge from the Nueces County District Court.

The MOWW is a veterans’ service organization which is sponsoring 27 YLCs across the country this year.
