Seven St. Edmond Middle School students attended the National Young Leaders State Conference in Wichita, Kan., March 7-10: Ashton Acree, Brooklin Border, Audrey Kolacia, Haley Ledford, Hannah Reynoso, Jake Heidenreich, and Max Wallace.
A unique leadership development program held in 30 cities across the country, the NYLSC helps young scholars take an introspective and highly-personalized assessment of their leadership skills and abilities. This year's theme was "Courageous Leadership."
Throughout the four day program, students built a working "toolkit" of strategies to help them successfully dream, create and implement plans to change how they view their role as leaders in their communities.
The NYLSC curriculum focused on an introspective and highly-personalized assessment of each student's leadership skills and abilities.
