(SAVANNAH, GA) Fifty-six young ladies from Chatham, Bryan, Liberty and Effingham Counties received a Leadership Award for completing the 2017-2018 Dawn’s Daughter Leadership Academy. A celebration to commemorate the accomplishment was held on June 2 at The Club at Savannah Harbor on Hutchinson Island.

Dawn’s Daughter, a program dedicated to empowering high school girls of all backgrounds and abilities to set big goals and make positive life choices that will enable them to maximize their full potential.

“Young women are increasingly taking their place in leadership roles across the world,” says Baker, “so ultimately this program is working to develop the next generation of leaders.”

During this year-long experience, participants learn about team-building, leadership styles, group dynamics, self-esteem and character building, managing finances and more. The academy is free and open to young ladies who are in the tenth and eleventh grades. As a nonprofit organization, Dawn’s Daughteris always in need of donations to keep its programs going.
