Youth Leadership **I do not own the rights to this music.**


Last night, this precious child, Olivia Lewis, delivered a thoughtful prayer at the beginning of the graduation ceremony. Olivia is a fearless leader. She analyzing everything before speaking then gives the most thoughtful answers and responses. So proud of you, Olivia!


All 5 students are Youth Leadership Graduates! We could not be more proud of the success our Graduates have had and continue to have!

With just a few more days left until graduation, we would like to congratulate all of our Seniors at HCHS and our five finalists for the Tabitha L. Gean Student of the Year Award! 🐯🐾

We are excited to recognize these students again when the Student of the Year is announced at our 27th Annual Distinguished Service Awards on June 22, 2023! 🏆🌟

For more information on the Distinguished Service Awards, please call our office at 731-925-2363 or email [email protected]


At the graduation ceremony, Haley Grace Johnson have an outstanding speech. It takes a lot of nerve to get in front of your peers and deliver a speech, and she absolutely NAILED IT! Wonderful job, HG!


This year, Kane White was chosen by his peers as the “Leader of the Year.” Kane has lead the pack this year whether it be diving head first into ice cold water at Dry Creek or holding the door for all the ladies. Great job, Kane!


Another year of Youth Leadership has ended, and we are all very sad! What a wonderful group of leaders we have had the privilege to spend time with this year! Congrats to these 22 Central Bank Youth Leadership Graduates (Not Pictured: Molly Pierce)!


Friendly reminder for our new YL class!


Congratulations to the 2023-2024 Central Bank Youth Leadership students!


Congratulations to Miss Maggie Miller, recipient of the Central Bank Youth Leadership Scholarship.

The rest of BACKROADS day was spent with Mr Jay, Mrs Cher, Mr. Kelly, & Mr. Kevin. We visited their new ATV park and the famous “Rainbow Falls.” We then enjoyed lunched provided by the Outpost at the new “The Outpost at Rainbow Falls.” Give the new store a few weeks and it’ll be up and running! It’s such a cool place! Thank you to the Harrison’s for their hospitality today!
