Hancock County's future

. October 23, 2012.

As a new school year begins, 48 area high school students are already “studying” the art of leadership and community service. Representing Findlay, McComb, Liberty Benton, Arcadia and Van Buren high schools, the students are participants in Hancock Youth Leadership ‘12 (HYL ’12).

Chosen from applications submitted by Hancock County high school sophomores, the group will participate in a nine-month seminar program that began with an overnight retreat in August. During the classes, members will be introduced to many aspects of the Findlay-Hancock County community, including agriculture, business, health and human services, arts, media, justice and diversity.

HYL is an affiliated program of the Findlay-Hancock County Chamber of Commerce, sponsored by the Hancock Leadership Alumni Association. HYL is an investment in the future of Findlay and Hancock County with the purpose of enhancing knowledge and developing leadership skills in a select group of high school students. The program hopes to motivate them to become positive role models, active and committed to their civic responsibilities.
