Grant Career Center launched its LEAD Ready program on Friday September 1, 2017 with 30 teacher-selected high school juniors.
During this “Preview” session Student LEADers learned class details including its underpinnings of Personal Leadership, Strengths-based Leadership, and Servant Leadership. In this picture Grant’s Superintendent Dr. Lisa Tuttle-Huff explains The Promise portion of the program asking students to use the leadership skills they will learn to create a new Student LEADership Board and Ambassador Program.
Using Grant provided laptops, students accessed the LEAD Ready online Collaboratory to access class schedules, update their contact information, identify observers for their Student Leadership Practices Inventory (SLPI-360), write their “Personal Best Leadership Experience (their STAR Story), and write a meaningful leadership quote -theirs or one found online. Their quotes were impressive, informative, and inspiring. A few examples:
Elley Lansaw-Powers, Grant’s Director of Public Relations and 2017 LEAD Classic Alumni will work with the class throughout the program, especially with the emerging Ambassador Program.
Their “Call to LEAD” is September 27, 2017, with classes every three weeks through February, 2018. Their “Commence to LEAD” is scheduled for February 14, 2017 with a reception for LEADers and their families, followed by their “Promise” presentation to the Grant School Board.
