By AccessWDUN staff

The Greater Hall Chamber of Commerce has announced the 12th class of Youth Leadership Hall and it is the largest class yet with 79 students.  Initiated in 2005, the program now has some 718 student graduates.

A program for high school juniors and seniors, YLH seeks to provide an investment in the community’s future leadership by fostering interest in the community and inspiring students to become the leaders of tomorrow, according to a chamber news release.

The program begins with a kick-off program at the Gainesville Civic Center in August with educators, principals, superintendents, volunteers and parents.  Students will participate in monthly programs on topics such as the judicial system, healthcare, servant leadership, and economic development.  Students applying for the program must have a satisfactory academic standing and be nominated by a teacher, administrator, coach, or extracurricular activity director.
