High schoolers attend Rising Leaders Rally

ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  More than 400 high school juniors and seniors participated in Chick-Fil-A's first Rising Leaders Rally Tuesday.

The students were chosen by their schools to attend the rally at Darton College.

Dougherty County Schools Superintendent Dr. Joshua Murfree told them a leader is someone who steps up to the plate and has a vision for the future. He said they should be striving now to find a career. Organizers want students to know being a leader is hard work.

"There are a lot of ups and downs a lot of positive things that come our way as leader and we just want them to know what real world leadership looks like," said Anna Wari, Chick-Fil-A Rising Leader Rally Organizer.

"Probably the greatest attribute of a leader is to derive satisfaction from the achievement of the people that they do lead. To help them meet their potential," said Phil Orazi Chick-Fil-A Sr. Director Training & Development.

A seven student panel representing all the schools agreed leaders aren't born, but are made through the trials and tribulations they experience.

Divided out, it will mean a maximum of $7.68 per a customer that has all five services, less money for customers that use less services.
