Three Muscogee County high school students participated in a leadership and media training program at CNN over the summer.
Carmen Williams, a student at Columbus High School and Jenalyn Wright and Sadie Lake, students at Hardaway High School, were selected to participate in "Leadership: Unplugged: A CNN Experience."
The week-long program took place June 22-27, 2008 at CNN's studios in Atlanta. Students participated in panels hosted by CNN executives and talent and developed and pitched story ideas to Turner Broadcasting System executives.
The program was hosted by CNN and Turner Broadcasting in partnership with 21st Century Leaders and Georgia Tech's Center for Education, Integrating Science, Math and Computing.
