November 15, 1998|By Rosalie Falter | Rosalie Falter,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

THE WOMAN'S Club of Linthicum Heights, in cooperation with the Hugh O'Brian Youth Leadership, is sponsoring a Community Leadership Workshop for high school sophomores Saturday at its clubhouse, 110 N. Hammonds Ferry Road.

The workshop will include sessions on entrepreneurship and volunteerism.

It is coordinated by club members Anne Yakaitis, Hugh O'Brian Youth Leadership chairwoman for the Maryland Federation of Women's Club's Southern District, and Carole Applegate, chairwoman of Maryland's Community Leadership Workshop program.

Speakers on the volunteerism panel will include Pam Beidle, recently elected to the County Council from District 1, and Midshipman 1st Class David Ostwind, a Hugh O'Brian Youth Leadership alumnus.

On the entrepreneurship panel will be Michael Aronin, a comedian with disabilities from cerebral palsy. Yakaitis' daughter, Beth Yakaitis, will lead two small leadership workshops. She was this year's Hugh O'Brian Youth Leadership representative from the Institute of Notre Dame.

Assisting with the day's events will be members of the literature and education committee.

Hugh O'Brian, an actor who played Wyatt Earp on television, founded the leadership program in 1958 after returning from a trip to Africa, where he met and was inspired by Albert Schweitzer, who said: "The most important thing in education is to teach young people to think for themselves."
