Lessons in teamwork, endurance and leadership
Marshallberg, N.C. —Kamryn Boone and Jurnee Miller know all about being leaders in their homes. The 15-year-old Atlanta teenagers have younger siblings to tend to and set an example for.

More than 20 Atlanta public school students joined a handful of students from Montana in Outward Bound courses in the Blue Ridge Mountains and off the coast of Marshallberg, N.C.
