Igniting a Spark-Building Leaders!
Leesburg Area Chamber of Commerce-Spark Program– On Monday, September 28, 2015, 45 Leesburg High School Juniors and Seniors congregated at Warren W. Willis United Methodist Youth Camp to build on leadership and team building skills. Students participated in the Challenge Course which included ropes exercises (low and high ropes). The Challenge Course offers group exercises that help strengthen team building skills by reinforcing trust and communication through a diverse range of exciting activities and challenges.
Last school year, a bright spark was ignited, as student leaders from Leesburg High School had the opportunity to participate in a leadership development program created by Leesburg Area Chamber of Commerce for Leesburg High School students. The goal is to ignite our leaders of tomorrow, and promote Leesburg and Lake County opportunities and its success. With the assistance of LHS administration and faculty, we identified student leaders within the school including; academic, sports, performing arts, agricultural, etc. to participate.
The program is organized as 5 day trips/sessions, scheduled throughout the school year. These trips are held throughout Leesburg and Lake County and provide a learning experience about the area and the different opportunities that our great county has to offer.
Thank you to our Sponsors: LRMC, SBDC-Leesburg, LSSC, and Sunset Rotary!!!
