Each year, Weirton Area Chamber of Commerce hosts a Youth Leadership for sophomore students different schools in Weirton and nearby counties. I'm glad our son have participated into it.
The organizations mission in hosting this event is to raise up and inspire youth to adopt a healthy lifestyle and to empower them to become strong leaders who will make our community a better place for everyone to live and work.
The graduation was held in March 12 at Holiday Inn.
At first, our son did not want us to attend the graduation but upon learning that all parents of the students from his school, I insisted that we do attend. I did not want him to be the only one who didn't have parents there. I'm glad we attended.
