December Leadership Seminar

What do successful relationships have to do with leadership?  That was the question at the December 6 Leadership Seminar.  We worked with 60 students around strategies they can apply to be a Servant Leader everyday. Through fun interactive activities like the Build Frosty a House Design Challenge and You Can Build a Snowman, the AES MS Students had fun and focused on how they worked with each other. A great time was had by all!

Leadership Seminar #1


Seventy-five MS students attended the first MS Leadership Seminar of the year!
