Lone Star College Leadership High School Open to New Caney ISD
Being surrounded in a college atmosphere is always a great way to get high schoolers excited for higher education! Lone Star College has started their Leadership High School program for select school districts in the Houston area, and the Tavola Community’s district is included. New Caney ISD Sophomores and Juniors are currently able to sign up for this program at Lone Star College Montgomery.
This program was developed to help create community awareness and cultivate leadership skills in the high school students who enroll. Lone Star College Leadership High School is accepting applications online now until Friday, September 20, 2019. The sessions are free of cost and will be held at Lone Star College Montgomery. For many students’ convenience, transportation to and from the college will be provided, as well. Students enrolled in this program will have the opportunity to “learn leadership skills, servant leadership, community awareness, and engage in dialogue about issues facing our community.”
As students advance through high school, they will learn how valuable leadership skills will be in their futures. This skill will teach students confidence and team work that they can continue to carry into college and their careers. Being surrounded by mentors and professors on a college campus can be extremely encouraging to high schoolers, too. Students will have the chance to speak one on one with those who will have been in their shoes not too long ago. This chance will establish trust and let students know that they have someone they can talk to about any problems or difficulties they may be facing in their high school. The Lone Star College Leadership High School Program is an incredible way for students to build each other up and get more involved with their community.
