Leadership Council
Advisor: Mrs. Dee Strauss
The Leadership Council is made up of all of the student organization, class, & club leaders and their advisors, to provide help and assistance to all student organizations, helping them to become stronger and more connected with other organizations and our community at-large.
The purposes of the Leadership Council are as followed:
> To promote school spirit
> To promote student/staff cooperation
> To promote organization cooperation
> To promote good character
> To promote community involvement
> To promote service learning
> To prepare & maintain an officer handbook for all clubs/organizations
> To promote student involvement
The Leadership Council will meet regularly on a monthly basis . With this committee, we hope to be able to strengthen multi-organization fundraisers and public relation efforts. We also hope to help strengthen the smaller organizations within our group, and help give birth to new ones. With membership in the council, it is also imperative that our student representatives attend School Board and Board of Supervisor meetings, to make sure the our public leaders understand that our students take an interest in what happens in their county and in their schools. Ultimately, we hope to encourage the students at our school to become more active in extracurricular and to help each and every student find a club fit for them.
