The Richland Community Development Group in conjunction with The Ohio State University at Mansfield and North Central State College sponsors a program called LeaderRichland. This program brings area business and community leaders together with middle school students for a day of sharing possibilities and opportunities for their future. Last year, more than 45 speakers presented to Lexington Junior High's female students and numerous other female students in the area about school and career choices. Students will also tour the campus at OSU-Mansfield/North Central State. It is a wonderful opportunity for students to experience "what is out there" for them as well as promote the growth and development of our community. This year we will join this program with our 7th & 8th grade boys. I hope to attend every year so all of our students get this opportunity. The program will be Monday, May 22nd. Students will return for normal dismissal time and lunch will be provided.

We will send home an informational letter. Please contact the school with any questions.
