Konleigh attended the Lone Star Leadership Academy, Education in Action on June 23 through June 28, 2013.

I am Tina Owens, Konleigh Eben's mom. I sent her to this camp wondering if she was going to enjoy it or not. I worried about her until I received a letter from her saying that she was having fun. This was such an awesome experience for her. When I picked her up, I wondered what she was going to say. I figured it would be one of the two. One, "Mom this was so boring and I don't ever want to come again." Or, two, "Mom, it was fun and I want to come again." Well, when I picked her up, she said, "Mom, I want to go next year and I want to go to the one in Houston!" Well, I guess I will be signing her up for Houston. She is one awesome kid for taking the risks and trying out these camps to gain experience in so many areas and meet lots of people! Way to go, I love you Konleigh Kaye!
