Portales youth speak up

By Mickey Winfield: PNT staff writer

About 60 Portales-area high school and college students made their voices heard over the last six months, culminating in a town-hall style event Wednesday at Portales’ Memorial Building.

The event is called Tomorrow’s Leaders — but event facilitator Nicole Wilkening thinks that title is a bit misleading.

“They are not leaders of tomorrow,” Wilkening said.
