Leadership Day is an important day for the Boys & Girls Club Youth of the Year finalist. They spend the day meeting community and business leaders to learn about each organization and what it takes to be successful. The leaders are strategically selected to tie into each teen’s future aspirations.
To start the day, the 4 Youth of the Year candidates were met by a white stretch limousine, provided by Eagle Luxury Transportation (ELT). They were chauffeured to each of their destinations in comfort and style.
The teens visited St. Lucie Medical Center for a tour and a question and answer session with Port St. Lucie Mayor Greg Oravec, City of Fort Pierce Mayor, Linda Hudson, County Commissioner Linda Bartz, and Vice President of GL Homes, Glenn Ryals. Their next stop was at the the St. Lucie County Courthouse, where they were able to witness two cases go before Judge Ed Alonzo.
Dr. Ed Massey and his assistant Andy Treadwell treated the candidates to lunch and a tour of the Kight Center for Emerging Technologies at Indian River State College.
They also visited the Harbor Branch Ocean Discovery Center and Natalie’s Orchid Island Juice Company.
