For most people, it’s hard to gain self-confidence, increase communication skills, instill commitment to ideals and learn to motivate others in a lifetime, let alone in just one week. But that’s exactly what happens when 160 specially selected high school students head to Florida Southern College in Lakeland for Rotary’s Seminar For Tomorrow’s Leaders.

S4TL, as it is known to Rotarians, offers young people skills to develop into tomorrow’s leaders. This year’s students from Lake Placid were Brisia Fonseca, Nelida Torres and Sophia Hernandez. They joined other “yellow shirts” from Florida Rotary Districts 6890, 6950, & 6960 for the week-long event. The “yellow shirt” designation refers to the colored shirts identifying the participating students. Students who have previously participated and return to assist as counselors wear red shirts.
