NORWICH – Select sophomores, juniors and seniors at the Norwich High School received a crash course in dynamic leadership Wednesday during the first of what school administrators hope to be many student leadership seminars.
Approximately 50 students filed into the high school library early Wednesday morning for an interactive workshop titled Student Leadership 101, a brief course intended to develop the skills needed for effective leadership in the school and community. The three-hour seminar, facilitated by newly appointed High School Principal Kermit Moyer, touched on subjects such as active collaboration with classmates and teachers, maintaining positive relationships, affirmative image, and taking pride in one’s work.
The underlying goal, said Moyer, is to boost a positive climate and culture for the 600-plus students attending Norwich.
“Students do have a voice, they are important, they are valued and we as educators are here to provide for them,” he explained.
