Editors Note: King Philip Regional High School Principal Lisa Oliveira has passed along the following on three KP students who recently attended a leadership confrence.
Three members of the King Philip Regional High School Student Council attended a leadership conference sponsored by the Massachusetts Association of Student Councils and the Massachusetts Secondary School Administrator’s Association. Tory Atkins, Eddie Cullinane and Megan McNeil participated in a one week, co-curricular conference at Wheaton College in Norton, MA.
At the conference, students learned, practiced and applied leadership fundamentals. The varied curriculum included practical training in goal setting, organization, group process, team building, communication and evaluation, to name a few. Conference Co-Directors Vincent Crossman and Michele Denise spoke very highly of the King Philip Regional High School delegates. “The delegates represented from King Philip Regional High School did very well., and really excelled in our program”, said Crossman. “I was equally impressed by their commitment to better themselves as leaders and individuals,” added Denise.
These are young people who are dedicated to making their mark not only on KP but on the world, and I believe they will do it! Tori and Megan will continue to go on and pursue greatness at the college level, but Eddie a sophomore, will pursue earning his National Student Leadership Certification and continue to serve KP for the next two years.
The MASC Leadership Conference is held each summer at Wheaton College. It is open to student leaders in grades 9-12.
