Seniors attend leadership institute
Eudora High School students Christina Pyle and Mary Cox were among the more than 60 high school seniors from across Kansas chosen to participate in the first Youth Civic Leadership Institute July 12 to 14 at the Dole Institute of Politics at Kansas University.
The program is designed to foster appreciation and involvement in public service and consisted of a variety of speakers, outings, workshops and brainstorming sessions that were focused on making public service at all levels accessible and understandable.
A trip to the state Capitol to meet with Kansas government leaders was also part of the program.
Pyle and Cox were selected by their high school administrators based on their interest in civic engagement and public service.
