A member, Tyra Pearson, a sophomore at WGHS, spoke on the orientation as “very informative”. Pearson gave a brief overview of what happened at the orientation saying, “They talked to us about a lot of dates for the future [and] then we got to socialize with some of the people there to start to know each other.” Pearson believes that through Youth Leadership Walton she “can improve [her] leadership skills and [her]self as a leader.” When questioned about why she joined YLW she said, “I feel like it would look better on my resume if I have leadership programs [I’ve] attended.”
Similarly, another sophomore, Thomas Butler, thought the orientation was “a lot of fun”. Butler expressed his feelings about being in YLW stating, “I feel good knowing I’m a part of Youth Leadership Walton and I’m excited for what’s next.” When asked why he joined YLW Butler disclosed that “it looks good on [his] resume and helps build leadership skills [he] can use in the future."
