The Cherokee County Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce the graduation of the participants in the 19th Annual Teen Leadership Cherokee (TLC) Class. Of the numerous Cherokee County high school sophomores that applied, 17 students were recognized for completing the program. Applicants were asked to submit a formal application and participated in a personal interview with local business leaders.

From January through March, the TLC Class attended an Orientation with their parents, a Retreat, and several class sessions which were planned by local business leaders all of whom are graduates of the Chamber’s adult Leadership Cherokee program. The classes addressed topics such as community involvement, economic and educational responsibility, personal development, and team building.  The class participated in an ongoing project that was designed to challenge the students with real-life scenarios that would instill invaluable skills and introduce the students to tools in the community that could assist them in a variety of circumstances.

The TLC program was made possible this year by the generous support of program sponsors Chattahoochee Technical College, Cobb EMC, Delta Community Credit Union, Killian Automotive, Northside Hospital Cherokee, Reinhardt University, REST Marketing, and State Farm Insurance Jey Willis Agency. The mission of Teen Leadership Cherokee is to develop the knowledge and leadership skills of young people in Cherokee County so they may confidently become our leaders of tomorrow.  The Chamber congratulates all of the students and is proud of their dedication and hard work throughout the program.
