Supporting student leadership development is important. Accordingly, Colchester High School recently sent a delegation to the Eighteenth-Annual Vermont Student Athlete Leadership Conference.
The conference, created from a partnership between the Vermont State Athletic Directors’ Association and the Vermont Principals’ Association, is designed to encourage athletes to be effective leaders and to inspire them to share their positive attitudes with their schools and communities. The event included speakers, breakout sessions, an awards banquet, and a host of group activities. CHS’s representing athletes to the conference have a wide breadth of athletic experience, having collectively participated in field hockey, ice hockey, basketball, lacrosse, football, soccer, softball, and track.
School athletic programs are often heralded for encouraging discipline, accountability, responsibility, sacrifice, and self-confidence while instilling a sense of community spirit and school pride. They are also regarded as a fun and engaging way to enhance health and wellness and combat youth obesity.
If you would like more information about the conference or about CHS athletics, please contact CHS Athletic Director Bernie Cieplicki by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call (802) 264-5705.
