Live Oak students meet civic leaders

By Karen Cohilas - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Future leaders of Albany sat down for lunch with current city leaders Thursday.

A group of about 30 ambitious elementary students make up a club called Live Oak Leaders. They invited the sheriff, city commissioners,  police officers, and school board members to lunch at the school.

Students picked the brains of those leaders about how they got where they are. Our own Karla Heath-Sands, Ruthie Garner, Dawn Hobby, and Yolanda Amadeo were all there.

They met Jada Bell who plans to be the second female President of the United States.

"I think it's really important for when we grow up if we become a really big leader, we already know what to do, 'cause we learned it when we were little,"  said Bell.

"It's my pleasure to have lunch with all the Albany leaders. It was an honor to meet all these people," said Live Oak Leader Kyndall Butler.

Live Oak Leaders volunteer their time and recently donated toys to a family in a homeless shelter.
