Fort Cobb, OK – November 8, 2013 – Each year local teenagers have the opportunity to participate in Caddo Kiowa Academy of Lifetime Leadership youth leadership group. CKALL offers high school juniors and seniors the caliber of leadership training that is typically available only to corporate executives and government leaders.
The students meet once a month from September through December to participate in leadership-building activities and tofocus efforts on a volunteer service project. In most recent years, the group has partnered with DHS to provide foster teens some holiday cheer. The participants collect donations and then provide Christmas gifts to all Caddo County foster children ages 12-18. The group recently applied for a donation from the Caddo Electric Cooperative Roundup Program.
“We applied for $1000 and Caddo Electric increased the amount to $2500,” reported Cindy Murphy, CKALL trainer.
The donation will be used to purchase gifts for foster teens in the district. For more information about the CKALL program or to donate, contact Cindy Murphy at 405-643-3281.
