Students Give The Dawn’s Daughter Leadership Academy Two Thumbs Up

Students Give The Dawn’s Daughter Leadership Academy Two Thumbs Up

Another exciting and powerful journey begins for members of the Dawn’s Daughter Leadership Academy. 60 students from Chatham, Liberty, Bryan, and Effingham Counties recently began the 2018- 2019 session.

Dawn's Daughter 2018

Dawn’s Daughter 2018-2019

The young ladies met at Savannah Christian Preparatory School from June 11th through June 15th. During that week, twenty- three experts from Chatham and Bulloch Counties put on interactive workshops that focused on leadership, financial management, self-esteem and character building, public speaking, goal setting, time management, SAT prep, tips to overcome bullying, and more.

Students have been on cloud nine as they talk about their experiences at the academy. On an anonymous survey, students responded: “Dawn’s Daughter Leadership Academy will give you endless strength in the days when you feel alone, powerless, or helpless. I fondly remember all of the wonderful people who crossed my path. In this wild, random journey of life, I have found the strength to forge my destiny.” “Nothing can be better than this. It was an amazing experience!”

They are excited about continuing the yearlong academy. So is the founder and executive director Dawn Baker. “I cannot even begin to express how overjoyed I am that the young ladies are not only attending the academy, but they are looking forward to it and getting so much out of the experience. In a time when it appears as if young people are only interested in pop culture, electronics and social media, it is refreshing to see that these tenth, eleventh and twelfth graders want to learn about character building and lessons that will help them become successful in their schools and communities now and well into the future.”
