Lead On Summit Scheduled

Lead On Summit Scheduled
Annual Leadership Summit aimed at Developing High School Students in Churchill County Designed for and inspired by the young leaders of Churchill County, LEAD On’s fourth annual summit will be held Jan 18, 2020 at Churchill County High School. With “Next Level You: Envisioning 2020 & Beyond!” as this year’s summit theme, participants will think deeply about their natural gifts, goals, and personal journeys. Like previous years, the summit is an opportunity for the young leaders of Churchill County, from both CCHS and Oasis Academy, to engage with one another as well as leaders that came before them through development activities and a keynote speaker. Group icebreakers, workshops, a service project and guided self-reflection will help participants bolster their leadership skills and future goals. Allison Woolsey will share her story and advice to students as the Summit’s keynote speaker. Before completing her degree and becoming a 6th-grade teacher in Salt Lake City, UT, Woolsey could be found decked out in green and white for athletic events, organizing school socials and community events as student body president, or watching Fallon’s breath-taking sunsets with friends she considers to be family. “Growing up in Churchill County was a blessing and it is an honor to be able to share my story with its youth at the upcoming summit,” said Woolsey. “I believe in pushing yourself out of your comfort zone, being open to new and scary adventures, and in being your pure authentic self.” In addition to the keynote speaker, community leaders within Churchill County will engage with students in various activities including a service project for the newly constructed William N. Pennington Life Center. LEAD On, formerly known as LEAD Green, is a local Nevada 501c(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting and cultivating young leaders in Churchill County through trainings like the summit, a scholarship program and mentoring. Fallon native and CCMS English teacher Monica Davis currently serves as the organization’s president. “Previous summits left a positive impact on a lot of high schoolers in Churchill County,” said Davis. “We are excited to continue our tradition and to make this summit the best one yet!” To sign up, participants can register online at leadonnevada.org or on-site.
