Falmouth students headed to Maine Youth Leadership Conference

FALMOUTH — Each year Maine high schools are invited to nominate a sophomore student to attend the Maine Youth Leadership Seminar, a four day seminar held at University of Southern Maine in Gorham.

This year faculty and staff from Falmouth High School chose Michael Richards as their representative and Hillary Nash as an alternate. Both students received the highest number of votes and were selected based on their outstanding leadership qualities.

Since 1980, Maine Youth Leadership has worked with Maine youth to seek out, recognize and develop their leadership skills. Their goal is to motivate Maine’s future leaders and create a network of civic-minded students who will better their communities through volunteering.
