SVC Students Attend Leadership Conference
Six students from Southern Vermont College attended the Annual Leadership Conference at Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts (MCLA) with this year’s theme: Leaders of the Roundtable. Keynote speaker Jamie Piperato addressed ways in which leaders cultivate resilience and learn to identify their resources. These tools are key in the development of student leaders as they grow, challenge themselves, and persevere. Students attended several sessions including a capstone experience presentation on how leadership is a dual role in the community. MCLA has hosted this conference for the past 23 years for students to gain practical leadership skills that can be put to immediate use. Students will challenge each other to expand their thinking,investigate the diversity of leadership, and set high standards for leadership on their campus.
