ELKTON — Gilpin Manor El­e­men­tary School stu­dents aren’t let­ting their youth stop them from tak­ing the first steps to be­come lead­ers at their school and in the com­mu­nity.

Since the be­gin­ning of the year, stu­dents have been learn­ing and re­flect­ing on what it means to be a leader as well as putting that in­for­ma­tion into prac­tice by in­ter­view­ing for lead­er­ship po­si­tions at school such as as­sem­bly helper, safety pa­trol and stu­dent am­bas­sador. All that work cul­mi­nated in Lead­er­ship Day, which was held Tues­day at the school and con­sisted of a short pro­gram, fol­lowed by a se­ries of stu­dent recog­ni­tion cer­e­monies and stu­dent- led con­fer­ences.
