Ray-Pec High School student Elizabeth Daugherty (front row, center) attended the Missouri Leadership Seminar, Inc. June 8-10 on the University of Central Missouri campus in Warrensburg. Elizabeth, who will be a junior this fall, joined more than 200 other young leaders representing as many high schools from throughout Missouri. Selected to represent Ray-Pec High School, Elizabeth is the daughter of Ken and Barb Daugherty. The Raymore-Peculiar Sunrise Optimist Club sponsored her participation. The mission of the Missouri Leadership Seminar, Inc. is to introduce future leaders to the values of leadership, citizenship, and community service. They learn while interacting with other potential high school sophomore leaders (both public and private schools) from every background and community throughout the state. Service projects are utilized both during the seminar and afterward as a way to introduce young leaders to the personal and social values of service as well as volunteerism.
