Leadership Opportunity for Rising 11th Graders
Junior Leadership Lake Norman is a program for high school juniors in the Lake Norman-area, sponsored by the Lake Norman Chamber of Commerce. The program was specifically created to inform, motivate and increase the overall awareness of participating high school students through educational seminars and interaction with various decision-makers of local businesses, government agencies and civic organizations. Selected students will learn about our community during this rewarding eight-month long program.

Several Lake Norman Charter students have benefited from participating in the program over the past years, both by gaining a behind-the-scenes look at the business operations of our community and by making strong local connections. The application deadline is August 10, 2018.
