WASHINGTON, D.C. Grafton High School Sophomore Megan Nielson returned this week from the National Young Leaders State Conference (NYLSC). She is the daughter of Charles Nielson and Cindy Taylor. Megan was nominated to attend the NYLSC by Pam Thomspon, a teacher at the Taylor County Middle School.

Saturday at the National Young Leaders State Conference (NYLSC), Megan explored the concepts of diversity and tolerance and investigated the effect of words and actions on others.

Megan then participated in the conflict resolution workshop where she explored how conflict can escalate from discomfort to crisis, and then practiced a variety of techniques to help address conflict appropriately.
