Testimony:

“NEW Leadership helped me focus and gave me a desire to aim a little higher. I gained practical skills like how to put together a speech in 3 parts, being able to articulate important bits about myself , and crafting a resume. It was a lot of  little pieces that came together” -Kaylee Abbott, class of 2011
