    Congratulations to these young leaders! They make us proud. They are poised, intelligent and speak well — and it’s not easy to speak to a large audience with press microphones in your face. You are some of our future leaders, I’m sure!

    Congratulations to our young people! They are intelligent, poised and eloquent, and they appear to have the qualities, drive and determination that our future business, political and other leaders will need. Why aren’t they getting better coverage? Keep up the good work students!
