Students participating in leadership camps

Hudson's Journey: EXTRA Wonderfully Made

Six Wesson High School students -- three girls and three boys -- are participating in state Lions Club leadership camps this month.


The girls -- Abbey Berch, Cailley Duplantis and Kala Nhem -- met this past weekend (March 8-10) and the boys -- Tate Brister, Kemari Brown and Alan Luong -- are going March 22-24. 


Local Lions Clubs from throughout Mississippi have been sending some 60 to 80 high school sophomores, juniors and seniors to each of the camps for more than 40 years.


The camps held at Lake Tiak-O-Khata in Louisville, Mississippi, offer a supportive and inclusive environment in which the students can connect with like-minded peers and form lasting relationships through interactive workshops, team-building, engaging discussions, among other activities.  Participants gain valuable insights into effective communication, problem-solving and decision-making and are empowered to navigate the challenges they face with resilience and grace.


While each local Lions Club covers the cost for the students from their areas, they also to look to their communities for monetary and in-kind donations.  Wesson Lions Club is currently seeking funds and material contributions for necessities, such as food and drinks, paper goods and project supplies, and items are needed to fill goodie bags give to each camper when they arrive.


For information, contact Wesson Lion Gail Freeman at 601-757-9591.
