Several members of the Templeton Middle School Student Council, a high school student and an adult advisor took part July 10-15 in the Wisconsin Association of School Council’s (WASC) Level 1 Student Leadership Workshop at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay campus
Templeton students Andrew Kristensen, Jessica Doyle, Matthew Kline, Amanda Wagner and Danielle Barbian attended, along with Templeton teacher and Student Council Advisor Arlyn Clarksen, who served as a counselor. Courtney Konyn, a Hamilton High School student, also attended as a junior counselor.
Students who attended other summer WASC workshops included Shaun Heitman, Corie Spankowski, William Steiner, Amy Kimball and Michael Guzman.
Workshop activities emphasized communication and organizational skills, especially those skills necessary in planning, implementing and evaluating projects.
“The leadership workshop is designed to foster the development of a sound philosophy of leadership as well as increase each delegate’s leadership skills and personal self-understanding and self confidence,” said Al Ask, director of the workshop.
WASC is a statewide organization of public, private and parochial middle, junior and senior high school student council groups. In addition to sponsoring seven levels of leadership training at summer workshops, WASC provides year-round support and programs for student responsibilities and leadership development.
