It's been 12 years since the Daily Herald introduced its first annual Leadership Team -- 12 years since we first put the spotlight on a group of high school students who lead extraordinary lives of service to others.

In today's Neighbor section you'll meet this year's honorees, students who represent some of the best examples of civic involvement in our communities. They are by no means the only ones -- scores of high school students across the suburbs are leading constructive lives of community service, and those recognized by this year's awards are only some of them.

Young people frequently get a bad rap in a society that seems to focus on the negative. Sure, there are young people who fail to live responsibly, just as there are adults who fail to live responsibly.

But so many more are working hard, studying conscientiously and volunteering their time, helping to make themselves and their neighbors better.

In the process, they also have learned how to lead. They have pulled people together for a common purpose -- to fundraise, organize, set goals, celebrate their successes and analyze their failures. In short, they are tomorrow's leaders.

We're happy to bring them to you today.
