About this Article

It's been 12 years since the Daily Herald first introduced its 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. This year's honorees represent some of the best examples of civic involvement in our communities. We're happy to introduce you to tomorrow's leaders.
