Freshmen and Sophomores LEAD!

On Saturday, February 21, nine freshmen and sophomore students from NCCU attended the LEAD 2009 Conference at Meredith College. The conference theme was "Sustain Yourself, Sustain Your Environment." The conference displayed various innovative methods to be sustainable, to go "green," and to be considerate of sustainability during hard economic times.

The LEAD Conference is hosted by a college or university each year in North Carolina. It brings together students from around the state for a day of leadership development workshops!

The nine NCCU students presented a workshop about diversity, discrimination, and stereotypes and how it applies to leadership roles. It was a wonderful experience, and the students represented NCCU with tremendous professionalism and school spirit!

Most excitingly, the LEAD 2009 Conference ended with the announcement that LEAD 2010 will be hosted at North Carolina Central University.

All incoming freshmen will have the chance to attend the LEAD conference in February 2010 at NCCU to learn valuable leadership skills!
