More than 25 Dublin middle school students graduated from a leadership program Dec. 8.

The Dublin Chamber of Commerce's Leadership Dublin Youth Program held graduation for 26 students who participated in the nine-week program, "iCare ... iServe ... iLead."

The program works to show middle school students needs in the community and how to become part of the solutions.

Over the course of the program, students worked more than 300 hours of community services at organizations including the Dublin Food Pantry, Welcome Warehouse, Ohio Wildlife Center and YWCA Family Shelter.

Students who completed the program include: Bentley Adkins, Sahil Ambardekar, Alex Budde, Claire Canute, Kate Dunn, Jacob Egelhoff, Julia Egelhoff, Braden Gartner, Katherine Griffin, Joseph Halsey, Jack Kemp, Jahnavi Kuruganti, Jenna Lynn, Ishika Majumder, Siddarth Mohan, Kylie Munk, Alex Patton, Christopher Posacki, Kellen Posacki, Tony Rossi, Lauren Saxton, Patrick Sellers, Anish Surepeddi, Allison Walsh, Nithya Warrier and Lydia Wisne.

The chamber's next session of the leadership program begins in late February and applications are currently being accepted.
