Congratulations to Amanda Herold and Skye Smith upon their graduation from Tomorrow’s Leaders Today on May 18, 2017. Amanda and Skye were chosen for Tomorrow’s Leaders Today and worked with students from other area school districts on leadership and community projects. Thank you to these two fine young women for representing Western Wayne High School in such a positive way!
Tomorrow’s Leaders Today is a youth leadership development program sponsored by Leadership Lackawanna. It is designed to give high school juniors leadership, interpersonal and managerial skills, an enhanced understanding of northeastern Pennsylvania and the opportunity to explore teamwork. Each year, a class of approximately 35 students, representing various geographic areas and high schools, will be selected to participate. The program runs from October through April. Sessions are held one full weekday each month beginning at 8:30 a.m. and ending at 2:30 p.m. A graduation ceremony is held in May. More specifically, collaborative decision making, communication styles and problem solving techniques will be explored. The challenges and opportunities of northeastern Pennsylvania will be identified and discussed. And, participants will have the opportunity to meet community leaders, as well as students from other high schools. Ultimately, upon completion of the monthly sessions, participants will have the necessary skills to become concerned and committed citizens who participate and invest in our community. High school students of today are the community and business leaders of tomorrow. Tomorrow’s Leaders Today turns aspiring teens into future adult leaders.
