Meet the CASL Class of 2022: Part I

Twenty-five motivated high school sophomores from seven schools in the Greater Concord region are enrolled in Capital Area Student Leadership. Offered by the Greater Concord Chamber of Commerce, and underwritten by Northeast Delta Dental, CASL is the state’s only regional student leadership and civics program. Enrolled students learn about Concord’s history and inner-workings, gain hands-on experience in public speaking and other leadership skills, and meet professionals from a variety of industries who are actively involved in the Greater Concord community.

The Chamber is proud to introduce you to participants in this year’s program. CASL has graduated over 700 young leaders, many of whom have gone on to become elected officials, entrepreneurs and community advocates.
