S.K.I.L. Helping the Next Generation of Leaders

Students involved in the S.K.I.L. program, Southlake Kids Interested in Learning, were recently given the opportunity to talk to local business leaders.

As part of the “S.K.I.L. Day of Internship” the students learned about the benefits and challenges of being in a position of leadership. The goal is to bring community leaders together with Southlake youth to help foster the next generation of decision-makers.

At the heart of the S.K.I.L. program is strategic decision-making. Something Mayor Laura Hill knows a great deal about. “The students in this program are our future leaders and decision-makers. The knowledge they gain from S.K.I.L. and talking with local business leaders will provide the tools they need to make a positive impact in their community,” said Mayor Laura Hill.

S.K.I.L. is a program created in partnership between the City, the Carroll Independent School District and the Southlake Chamber of Commerce. The program selects 20 high school junior students from Carroll Senior High School at the beginning of each academic year. To learn more about S.K.I.L.
