FHSD Hosts Activities Leadership Summit

Posted on 11/01/2016

During fall break in the Francis Howell School District (FHSD), most students took a breather from their hectic schedules of homework, testing, and other school activities to recharge their proverbial batteries for the rest of the semester. But one group took special advantage of their days off, with 20 members from each high school getting together at Francis Howell North (FHN) High School to become better leaders in their communities. They listened to guest speakers and took part in activities to learn more about what it takes to improve their teams or clubs, schools, and community.

At the leadership summit during fall break, there were two guest speakers, Jim Powers and Todd Zell. Powers, from the High School Sports Caravan, discussed the appropriate use of social media. Zell, executive director at MSHSAA, presented on the "Why We Play" program that the MSHSAA has adopted. Students created their own "why we play" statements, and also participated in multiple team-building activities.

Teaching leadership and sportsmanship helps students – whatever their activity may be – become better teammates for all of us…both on and off the field. The Activities Leadership Summit merely scratches the surface of how FHSD strives to foster better leaders and community members.
