FUTURES Foundation for Volusia County has selected 38 high school juniors to participate in the Tomorrow's Leaders Program. This is the 25th year of the program, which
develops young leaders for their community.
The students, representing all 10 area public high schools, attended an
orientation session, at the Atlantic High School,
theater, 1250 Reed Canal Road, Port Orange.
During the next four months, the students will participate in four day-long
seminars coordinated by community leaders. The seminars are designed to
