2015 Leadership Retreat Follow-Up & Appreciations

Back to the Future:  Synchronize Your Watches…Leadership Is Coming Back!IMG_2690
2015 Leadership Retreat Group Picture

Last weekend, 106 Roosevelt students attended the 30th Annual Leadership Retreat. Back to the Future:  Synchronize Your Watches . . . Leadership is Coming Back!, at Camp Wanake in Beach City, Ohio.  During the 3-day retreat, students had the opportunity to meet new people, hear 3 keynote speakers, participate in 4 hands-on labs, and learn about their own potential as leaders in our school and community.

Student delegates received an Advisor-Delegate Follow-Up Form to explain how they will use what they’ve learned to better their clubs, teams, and/or classrooms.  They should meet with their advisors sometime in the next two weeks to discuss those plans and complete the form.  Completed forms should be turned in to Heidi Jurging’s mailbox by Friday, Nov. 20.

In addition to that form, the last keynote speaker, a 2006 RHS graduate, Jacob Vanags, challenged delegates to TAKE ACTION, encouraging them to determine what they want to do and email their plan (to RHSleadership2015@gmail.com) by December 7 (one month from his talk).  Once they email, he will offer them his personal contact information to serve as a mentor to them in order to hold them accountable to putting their ideas in motion!

A huge THANK YOU to everyone that helped to make the leadership retreat a successful event!  Click Leadership Retreat Appreciations 2015 for a list of the many people who contributed to the planning and implementation.  We couldn’t have done it without the support of the RHS administration, faculty, and staff, as well as the Kent Community.  Their leadership continues to inspire the students of Roosevelt.

Sincerely,
The 2015 TRHS Leadership Retreat Planning Committee
