Seventy middle school students, representing twelve local schools, spent the day at Prep learning about leadership development in the 6th annual Middle School Leadership Workshop, “Leading Self, Leading Others: Leadership in the Ignatian Tradition.”
The workshop was conducted by Juan Arteaga, Trish Fitzpatrick, and the Ignatian Leadership Team (seniors James Anderson, James Bristol, Kyle Hess, Gus Nations, IV, and Samay Shamdasani, and juniors Bryan Barahona, Suvan Bhat, James Conti, Matthew Moreira, and Luke Morrison). Boys spent the morning at Prep, hearing talks from team leaders and spending time in reflection and discussion.
Saint Dominic Academy hosted a concurrent event for middle school girls on leadership in the Dominican tradition. The Saint Dom’s team and girls traveled to Prep for lunch and a prayer service.
Students are selected for this program by their principals, who are asked to identify students who demonstrate leadership in their schools.
