MOESC Announces Continuation of Student Leadership Conference

November leadership keynote speaker, Doug Worthington - Driven Foundation, sharing about authentic leadership practices.

Mansfield, OH (February 23, 2024) – Mid-Ohio ESC is excited to continue the Student Leadership Conference on March 7, 2024. The event will run from 9:00 a.m.-1:15 p.m. and is open to students in grades 9-12. 

This leadership series is open to all MOESC client/partnering districts, as well as all school districts in Crawford, Morrow and Richland counties. Students will enjoy two interactive and engaging days exploring leadership practices and will return to their districts with a plan to influence positive change in their schools and community. 

The conference aims to increase leadership capacities among students by giving them an opportunity outside of their home district to develop leadership and collaboration skills. The goal of this opportunity is to prepare students to assume leadership roles and become change agents. Bringing students from different districts delivers the possibilities of various perspectives and learning experiences.

All client/partnering districts will be able to send 20 students free of charge (five members from each grade 9-12). Districts can choose to send students who have attended in previous years or send students who have not attended. Mid-Ohio asks that each school send at least one chaperone with their students. Donuts, refreshments and lunch will be provided to students and chaperones at no cost.

The Keynote Speaker for the conference will be provided by the Ohio National Guard 179th. MOESC's Executive Director of Achievement and Leadership, Dr. Mark Burke, Jr., said, "Student leaders bring a level of excitement and enthusiasm that our adult leaders struggle to match. We encourage all area schools to join this day of leadership and learning.”

The Student Leadership Day agenda is as follows:
