| July 21, 2015

CCYL Class of 2016COSHOCTON – Coshocton County Youth Leadership (CCY) had its Opening Retreat at Salt Fork State Park Lodge and Conference Center in Cambridge, OH, on July 19-20. Facilitated by Bart Winegar and Brad Fuller of Move Your World/AEGIS Consulting LLC, the 15 youth in attendance learned leadership and teambuilding skills through a variety of activities that challenged them both mentally and physically. In addition, the group learned the importance of giving and receiving compliments, communication and active listening skills, goal-setting, and budgeting. The retreat set the stage to begin the youth thinking about leadership and how to apply it in everyday life.

Participants are selected from Coshocton county schools during the spring of their sophomore year to attend during their junior year.

Members of the CCYL Class of 2016 include: Anna Egbert, Coshocton Christian School; Ben Batchelor, Jonathan Eberwine, and David Edmunds, Coshocton High School; Jordan Conner, Eliza Haynes, Emily Kobel, Katie Leitz and Nathan Moses, Ridgewood High School; and Kenzi Addy, Ian Brinker, MacKenzie Doughty, Will Fornara, Morgan Lawrence and Aselya Sposato, River View High School.

Now in its 22nd year of providing leadership development skills to Coshocton County Youth, Coshocton County Youth Leadership is proudly sponsored in partnership by the Coshocton Foundation and Leadership Coshocton County. The nine-month program is provided at no cost to our youth through generous contributions provided by the Coshocton Foundation, Simpson Family Donor Advised Fund, Coshocton City School Foundation, River View Schools Donor Advised Fund, Frontier Community Connection Fund, and individual contributors. To date, CCYL has provided leadership skills to over 300 area youth.
