A new crop of future leaders in Marshall County started their training September 9.
The 2015-16 group of Marshall County Youth Leadership had their first meeting at Snead State Community College. The 36 juniors from eight high schools in the county participated in a virtual scavenger hunt and performed skits based on lessons from the book, The 7 Habits of a Highly Effective Teens by Stephen Covey.
