The program—which has impacted the lives of high school juniors in the area for more than 20 years—includes a nine-month series of seminars and programs designed to educate selected youth participants from Cullman area high schools on community issues such as education, healthcare, crime, government, economic development, and quality of life. Applicants are interviewed by a panel of judges each spring.
