Nicole Meadows, a 2007 graduate of South Forsyth High School, enjoyed Leadership Unplugged so much she started working for 21st Century Leaders.
Her favorite part of the camp, which she attended last summer, was the ethics workshop.
“We got to look at how the board (at CNN) decides what can be aired for the public,” she said. “They have to think about how it’s going to affect their viewers.”
The 19-year-old now studies publication management and magazines at the University of Georgia and works as a resident adviser for the summer programs.
“We wake up the kids at 6:30 (a.m.), and we do room checks and we make sure they’re having a good time,” she said. “And we help class facilitators with anything they might need.”
Meadows said she returned to the leadership program “because I loved it so much.”
“I miss being part of it, so it’s great to come back.”
