After four 30 minute practices the young ladies in the Rosebud Leadership Academy performed in the year end celebration held on May 12, 2017. The practices included learning how to model solo, in doubles and in groups. The young ladies also rehearsed reciting a poem and a young ladies creed. The night of the performance, each young lady, dressed in school-girl casual attire, modeled, stated their name, the high school they would attend and what they were grateful for. They all exhibited confidence in presenting themselves in front of an audience. Their parents the members of the St. Petersburg (FL) Chapter of the Links, Incorporated were proud. Great job Links Ann and Tia.
