Applications for the 2017-18 Junior Leadership Kershaw County class for rising juniors and seniors are now available at the county’s high schools and the Kershaw County Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Center.

Students interested in being a part of next year’s class must be a junior or senior at one of the county high schools during the current school year and complete an application by March 31. Completed applications must be turned in to the high school which the student attends. Incomplete applications will not be considered.

Each high school reviews its submitted applications and a school selection committee selects its 2017-18 representatives based on factors such as leadership ability, creativity, initiative, dependability, character, involvement in activities and good academic performance.

Students selected for the 2017-18 Junior Leadership class will be announced in May and will attend an orientation session with their parents before the end of the school year to review next year’s schedule and expectations. 

Students chosen to participate will be required to pay a $50 tuition fee to help cover costs such as travel, meals and supplies. The tuition will be non-refundable after July 1. Tuition scholarships are available based on need.

The 2017-18 Junior Leadership class will be composed of 32 juniors and seniors representing Camden High School, Lugoff-Elgin High School, North Central High School and Camden Military Academy.

The program begins its 29th year next August. It is an education partnership of the Kershaw County Chamber of Commerce, the Kershaw County School District and Camden Military Academy.
