Leadership Winnsboro completed its pilot summer program at the Farm Project on La. Hwy. 4.
Five of the youth who participated were awarded certificates of completion for their work over the summer in the garden. Youth constructed new beds, planted and tended plots, picked and sorted produce and helped with general work around the Farm Project.
Leadership Winnsboro is a partnership between The Delta Initiative, Scott Sartin at Winnsboro City Court, Winnsboro Police Chief Willie Pierce and the Winnsboro Police Department.
Winnsboro State Bank generously provided funding for the stipend each participant earned for their work over the summer.
Leadership Winnsboro is designed to give youth the skills they need to emerge as strong and contributing citizens of Winnsboro and Franklin Parish.
