On April 15, the Owen County Primary Leadership Class held its second-annual luncheon.
The seven young leaders greeted guests from all the businesses that they had visited over the year.
Peoples Bank, First Farmers Bank, Owen Electric, Owen Dental Center, New Horizons Family Practice, the Owen County Extension Office, and staff members from the Owen County Courthouse participated in the event.
The students each gave a speech about the places they had visited. Each student received a leadership participation certificate and enjoyed lunch while chatting with their guests.
The leadership organizers would like to thank all the businesses for welcoming the group and showing their outstanding leadership qualities.
“We are lucky to live in a county where businesses and county offices are always eager to work with the school system,” Teena Gamble, the Owen County School District gifted and talented coordinator for K-5, said.
Gamble said this gives the students first-hand experience at an early age that hard work and perseverance leads to success.
