Whitewater’s Cameron graduates from leadership program

Whitewater High junior Destiny Cameron recently graduated from the Model Atlanta Regional Commission (MARC) youth leadership program along with 48 other high school students from across the region. 

MARC is a program of the Atlanta Regional Commission that engages students in experiential learning about the region’s most pressing issues. MARC students explored real-world issues such as housing affordability, responsible water usage, and the impact of limited transportation options as part of the six-month program. Participants spoke with local changemakers about equity and resilience and offered their own reflections on ways that the region can better serve its diverse population.   

The Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC) is the official planning agency for the 11-county Atlanta Region, including Cherokee, Clayton, Cobb, DeKalb, Douglas, Fayette, Forsyth, Fulton, Gwinnett, Henry, and Rockdale counties as well as the City of Atlanta and 74 other cities. The Atlanta Regional Commission’s mission is to foster thriving communities for all within the Atlanta region through collaborative, data-informed planning and investments.
