On Thursday, June 1, 2017, graduation was held for the Junior Leadership Northern Poconos, Class of 2017. Representing Western Wayne High School were Morgan Amorine, Caitlin Falloon, Mallory Jablon, Lilli Millon, and Abigail Zeiler. These students, along with students from Forest City Regional, Wallenpaupack Area, and Wayne Highlands, met monthly and came up with a community project called L.E.A.D.S. (Leaders Educating Against Drugs & Substances) to combat drug and substance abuse.
The Junior Leadership Northern Poconos program is specific to high school juniors of Forest City, Wallenpaupack Area, Wayne Highlands and Western Wayne High Schools. The purpose of Leadership Northern Poconos is to educate a group of potential leaders residing or employed in Wayne or Pike Counties about all aspects of the community. Their education will allow them to gain a better, more in-depth knowledge of the community and thereby become better prepared to be our future leaders.
