MSU at Mt. Sterling hosts youth camp

Morehead State University at Mt. Sterling hosted the third annual “This Land is Our Land Youth Leadership Camp” for sixth through 12th grades June 11-15.

A total of 30 students participated in the camp. The camp focuses on introducing young people to a variety of careers available in health care, teaching general leadership skills and experiencing first-hand community service. The camp culminates in a health care career fair where providers from more than a dozen health care professions offer interactive activities for the participants.

“We were delighted to host these incredible young people,” said Dennis McKay, MSU at Mt. Sterling director. “The camp is a wonderful opportunity for the students and the support of the community leaders and school administrators has been outstanding.”

The week’s activities included a tour of MSU in which participants spoke with various departments across campus including the Derrickson Agricultural Complex at the University Farm.

The camp was sponsored by the Montgomery County 4-H, Montgomery County Education Foundation and MSU Mt. Sterling.
