CONGRESSIONAL YOUTH LEADERSHIP CONFERENCE


 

Congratulations to ninth grader, Colleen Tomesheski, who recently represented Minisink Valley at the National Young Leaders Conference in Washington, DC.  Colleen was nominated because of her leadership potential which was honed and developed by the activities throughout the three-day conference.

 

The intense curriculum focuses on eight core leadership tools:  communication, conflict resolution, decision making, goal setting, group dynamics, leadership techniques, project management, and self awareness.  The students were then asked to develop a plan of personal leadership.

 

Colleen joined young men and women, nominated by their teachers from all over the country.  We thank Colleen for representing Minisink Valley at this prestigious event.
