The Californias Association of Student Leaders (CACL) presented Leadership Development Day, a workshop day at Fortuna Union High School on September 14th to train five high schools leadership teams excellent leadership skills. Brody Kaster, the CALC representative was a upbeat, exciting leadership trainer.
FUHS leadership students lead all the games and activities after being trained that morning quickly. Students from all clubs in the five high schools came out to join in the activities.
One of the topics at the Leadership Development Day was that the average school has only fourteen percent involvement in their after school event. Zoe, a junior at Fortuna Union High School and a FFA officer, was one of our many club members. She said “...that we need to get more people involved in our school activities. If you really think about it our school has a low percentage of involvement.”
Leadership is a really great way to get out in our community and get involved. Zoe said that she would recommend leadership to any incoming freshman or student who is interested because it makes your high school experience exciting!
