(08/16/13) - In Saginaw, it was a special day for some young woman and their families.
Twenty girls, ranging in age from 14-16, graduated Friday from the Michigan State Police Youth Leadership Academy.
They went through six hard days of team building and physical agility.
The goal of the program is to inspire these young women to come back to the community and become leaders.
The academy is funded by a grant from the Bureau of Justice Assistants.
It takes place in Lansing.
