Two of Biloxi High's Youth Advisory Council (YAC) students traveled with advisor Matt Buckley, to Florence, Miss., for the 2010 YAC Leadership Summit.
Brayden Belanger and Mazzy Powell worked with hundreds of students from throughout Mississippi, learning leadership and team-building skills. They completed highly engaging activities that showed them that they must get rid of the fear of image ("FIMAGE") in order to become better leaders.
As officers of BHS's YAC team, Belanger and Powell now have the opportunity to bring back what they learned and share with other students at BHS as an effort to make a difference in their school, said Buckley: "The messages and presentations were powerful, and, in the end, students were able to realize that only they are '100 percent responsible for their future.'"
