Three Kerrville ISD students spent time this summer developing leadership skills and gaining deeper knowledge of the state during a week-long Lone Star Leadership Academy Camp.

They were three of more than 700 students who participated in the camps, put on by Education in Action, a nonprofit organization dedicated to empowering young people to be informed and active leaders in their communities.
