Nearly 100 high school seniors will be honored for the work they've done this year to improve their schools at the 63nd annual Washington-Lincoln Laurels for Leaders luncheon Feb. 26.
The luncheon, held at SDSU, is an opportunity for associated student body (ASB) presidents from schools throughout the county to network with each other as well as with community and business leaders.
The public can help honor the students by sponsoring one and joining them at the luncheon. Register or get more details about sponsorship at the Laurels for Leaders website.
During the luncheon, the students will hear an inspirational speech from Sal Convento of the United States Karate Academy. A Martial Arts World Champion and ex-Navy pilot, Sal has spent his life committed to training and service. He will tell his inspiring story at the luncheon, highlighting how karate helped him develop lifelong leadership skills
Each student at the event will receive a check for $250 as well as a recognition certificate and medallion from Washington-Lincoln Laurels for Leaders, a local nonprofit started in 1957.
