The Take the Lead conference helps local high school students develop and grow in their leadership skills and ethical considerations. Atascadero Rotary hosted the 19th Annual conference at the Lake Pavilion on Thursday March 12th. Students from north county high schools attended for this day long training session.
 
Students began the day with several ice breakers including this challenge. While sitting on the floor back to back with arms locked they learned how to rise as a team. First 2, then 4, then 6 in a group the challenge became more difficult.
 
A classic Ford Model “A” was one mode of the more unusual transports used by students to arrive for the 8 am to 2 pm session.
