establishing West Point’s Mayor’s Youth Leadership Council
West Point, Mississippi, June 04, 2012—The City of West Point, MS and The Mississippi School of Protocol & Etiquette have formed a Strategic Partnership Alliance to offer leadership training titled “The Mayor’s Youth Leadership Core Training Program” to the youth of West Point, Mississippi. Participants will help establish West Point’s first Mayor’s Youth Leadership Council; a council to give West Point’s youth a community wide voice in many areas of citizenship.
The Mayor’s Youth Leadership Core Training Program provides participants, ages 7-12 and 13-18, the opportunity to learn and master: leadership skills, social and communication skills, self-esteem and confidence building, proper introductions, telephone etiquette, conversation and listening skills and dining etiquette.
On May 19, 2012 the City and Students celebrated their success with a five course formal dinner graduation banquet hosted at Old Waverly. Over 60 students received their Certificates of Completion given out by Mayor Scott Ross and Director Jay Pearson of MSOPE.
On June 12, 2012 Pearson will receive the honor at West Point’s City Board meeting at 5:30 p.m.. This will also be the first day the City of West Point Mayor’s Youth Leadership Council will meet.
It is Pearson’s goal along with MSOPE to assist every Mayor in Mississippi in establishing a certified Mayor’s Youth Leadership Council Program.
