CFF Offers Leadership Challenge Scholarships to Student Leaders
Each year, the Carolinas Freedom Foundation offers 30 area high school students rising 11th and 12th graders
the opportunity to attend the weeklong General Hugh Shelton Leadership Challenge.
Students must hold a grade point average of 3.0 or higher, demonstrate
high moral character and possess leadership skills.
Retired General Hugh Shelton, also the 14th Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff,
recently established the General H. Shelton Leadership Initiative for Leadership
Development to train students in developing strong leadership skills. A North Carolina
native and graduate of North Carolina State University, General Shelton returned
to his home state to inspire, educate, and develop values-based leaders throughout
communities in North Carolina. The program was created in the belief that leadership
must be based on four core values: honesty, compassion, integrity and diversity.
The 2014 Western North Carolina Session will be held on the campus of UNCC-Charlotte
and the exact dates will be announced later. To apply for a scholarship to the General Hugh
Shelton Youth Leadership Challenge, please contact Rita Gutierrez,

| Leadership roles and accountability
