21st Century Leaders, a Georgia-based non-profit youth leadership development program, announces the top 20 youth leaders selected for the 7th annual Georgia Youth Leadership Awards to be held on Thursday, February 26, 2015.
Since 2008, 21st Century Leader’s (21CL), in partnership with business and civic leaders, including Atlanta Business Chronicle’s 40 under 40 members, recognizes 20 outstanding high school students throughout Georgia who have made a significant impact on their schools, communities and beyond. This year’s top 20 includes non-profit founders, philanthropists, app creators, and community advocates who truly represent the diversity of Georgia with students from Atlanta to Valdosta, Walker County to Crisp County – all in high school. The nominated students were carefully chosen by a 16 member selection committee; comprised of 10 Atlanta Business Chronicle’s 40 under 40 members, two 21CL Board of Directors, two 21CL alumni, and two 21CL student peers.
21st Century Leaders is proud to announce Savannah’s own Lily Katherine Conneff, sophomore at St. Vincent’s Academy as one of the 20 outstanding youth leaders for the 2015 Georgia Youth Leadership Awards.
