This year the students from the 8-12 campus were invited to the KEAN High School Leadership Conference. Over 20 schools attended from all over New Jersey and had a total of around 500 students. Ms. Coyle and Ms. Rahman brought 25 students that consisted of recommendations from the different leadership programs here at PCSST. We had representatives from Student Council, JROTC, Peer Leadership, Elite 30, National Honor Society and Trendsetters.
The students were greeted with a guest speaker that spoke about finding your passion and “being bold enough to be yourself”. He talked about his journey through college about having a major and being successful but not being happy. How his life changed his path and now he talks to students around the world about changing theirs.
The students then broke into groups and worked with different students from a variety of high schools throughout New Jersey. It was a great experience and hopefully not the last conference for these leaders!
