Wilson County youth participate in summer leadership camps
Annika Eckel, Luke Moczygemba, Tristan Summy, and Cody Tieken of Wilson County participated in the Texas Brigades summer leadership camps in June and July. They were among 138 high school students that took part in this award-winning leadership development program.
The Texas Brigades’ mission is to empower high school youth with the necessary skills and knowledge in wildlife and fisheries, habitat conservation, land and water stewardship, team building, communication, and leadership to become ambassadors for conservation in order to ensure a sustained wildlife and fisheries legacy for future generations.
There are five Brigade camps each summer -- two Buckskin Brigades, two Bobwhite Brigades, and the Bass Brigade.
Participants are available to give presentations to schools and civic groups.
