Search Underway for Members of Newly Formed Granville County Youth Leadership Council
The Granville County Youth Leadership Council (GCYLC) is searching for inspiring High School aged youth leaders to form the Granville County Youth Leadership Council. Applications are being accepted through September 30, 2022.
The GCYLC is being formed as a partnership between the Granville County Board of Commissioners and NC Cooperative Extension. The council will offer 20-25 youth from diverse backgrounds across the county a chance to participate in a leadership development program while serving as ambassadors and youth voices to the County Commissioners and other local boards. The Council is being created to elevate youth voices and contribute to community development, programming and vision while providing youth a unique opportunity to be drivers of their own ideas from conceptualization to implementation and reflection.
The GCYLC is looking for young people in grades 9-11 who are interested in partnering with other youth from around the county who are passionate about making a difference. Members will also be encouraged to represent GCYLC at board meetings, conferences, and special events.
Students interested in applying should be enrolled in high school, live in Granville County, and be available for meetings at least one time per month. Community, youth, and faith-based organizations and educators are encouraged to nominate youth. If interested in applying, visit www.granvilleylc.weebly.com or contact Charissa Puryear at firstname.lastname@example.org or 919-603-1350.
Graduate Picture Day will take place on Monday, October 17th at The Mary Potter Center for Education at 200 Taylor Street, Oxford, NC 27565. Please go online (instructions attached) to schedule a picture time between 9am-2pm. You must schedule a picture time with Lifetouch to get pictures made.
Please see the attached brochure provided by Lifetouch with instructions for our graduates on how to go online and schedule your picture time. This process is different from our underclassmen pictures.
Lifetouch is offering the "evolution package" with a $25 sitting fee. This package includes their drape/tux (a pearl necklace will be provided for the ladies) and 2 outfit changes. Students can also opt to do just the drape or tux picture with no sitting fee. Lifetouch will take payments on-line or at the camera. Granville Academy will not be collecting any picture payments.
Graduates are responsible for scheduling their sit time, ordering their prints, paying for their prints, and having their packages delivered to their home. Granville Academy will not be handling any steps in this process.
