Good News: Dawn's Daughter Leadership Academy

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - A year-long leadership academy for young women in the Coastal Empire wrapped up this weekend.

Twenty-eight girls from Chatham, Liberty and Bryan counties celebrated a year of self-esteem, career and leadership workshops through WTOC Dawn Baker's very own Dawn's Daughter Leadership Academy.

Each one was matched with a mentor in their future career path.

"I love Dawn. She's so positive. And the fact that she made this program helps young girls get up on their feet and hold their head high, and all the important things in life we learned through here," said Alexandria Shearer, a Dawn's Daughter participant.

The next leadership academy starts in June. The deadline to apply is April 12.
