YARMOUTH — Parker Rollins, a fifth-grade student at Harrison Middle School, has been selected to participate in the Junior National Young Leaders Conference in Washington, D.C.

This summer, over 250 outstanding middle school students from across the U.S. will take part in an extraordinary leadership conference. This year’s conference, “Themed Voices of Leadership: Reflecting on the Past to Create the Future,” introduces young people to the rich tradition of leadership throughout American history, while helping them to develop their own leadership skills.
