FROM THE DIRECTOR...
Let me take this opportunity to congratulate you on your decision to attend a summer leadership workshop. This experience will allow you to improve your individual leadership skills and gives you the confidence to go back to your home council and implement what you have learned. Your time will be fun and rewarding, as well as filled with work. The staff will expect you to read, study, think, create and participate fully in all activities. You will be discussing and interacting with others as you are given the opportunity to meet new friends from across the state. At the conclusion of this workshop I am confident that you will not only be well prepared, but also enthusiastically anxious to return to your school and make it a better place for learning and growing. In order to help prepare you for this busy week of activities, the following information is provided to make your week more pleasant, restful, exciting and profitable. If you have a question that is not answered, feel free to contact me. I am excited to be teamed with Leadership Consultant Katie Keyes.
