Youth Leadership and Wellness Summit

 “We Have Decided”, Youth Leadership & Wellness Summit. It is planned for February 13, 2020, at the beautiful Forsyth Conference Center. Along with Webb Bridge Middle School Assistant Principal Carmen Hurst, we have teamed up with 5 local Middle School’s and their Assistant Principals, in the Northwest Learning Community (NWLC) of Fulton County schools, to serve a selection of 7th & 8th-grade students from each school.
