CHS Junior, Megan T., was recently selected to attend the two-day Key Leader retreat in Ashley, Ohio. According to its website, Key Leader is a weekend experiential leadership programs for today’s young leaders. The event focuses on service leadership and helping others succeed.
The event is part of Kiwanis International and Megan’s stay was funded by the East Geauga Kiwanis Club.
During the retreat, Megan and the other students participated in several activities that focused on developing the five Key Leader Principles of personal integrity, personal growth, respect, building community, and pursuit of excellence. Megan says, “I can take away a numerous amount of life skills from this retreat. I learned how to be strong in my values, and to be a better communicator, I must be an active listener. To gain trust I must first, respect others, their belongings, and myself. Leading takes achievable goals.”
As Varsity Cheerleading Captain, Megan says she’s gained some great perspective on how to use her new Key Leader skills to take charge and set a better example for her fellow peers.
