Barrow C. Elementary School fifth graders ended the year with a trip to the Marine Extension Education Center on Skidaway Island.
David Meyers and Brendan Leahy, faculty members at the J.W. Fanning Institute for Leadership, accompanied the students. In addition to learning about marine biology, the youth practiced leadership skills that had been a focus throughout the year. The leadership session focused on effective communication, problem solving, and conflict resolution. Approximately 60 youth participated in the end of year trip.
