Lone Star College Leadership High School Open to New Caney ISD
Walking through a college environment is a great way to get high schoolers excited for higher education! Lone Star College has started their Leadership High School program for select school districts in the Houston area, and the Kings Mill Community’s district is included. New Caney ISD Sophomores and Juniors are currently able to sign up for this program through the online application now until Friday, September 20, 2019..
This program was designed to create community awareness and cultivate leadership skills in the high school students who enroll. The sessions are free of cost and will be held at Lone Star College Montgomery for the students of New Caney ISD. For many students’ convenience, transportation to and from the college will be provided, as well. Students enrolled in this program will have the opportunity to “learn leadership skills, servant leadership, community awareness, and engage in dialogue about issues facing our community.”
As students advance in their high school career, they will learn just how valuable leadership skills are in their success. This will teach students confidence and team work that they can apply in their college classes and careers. Being around mentors and professors on a college campus can be extremely encouraging to high schoolers, too. Students will have the chance to speak one on one with those who will have been in the very same high school chairs not too long ago. This chance will establish trust and let students know that they have someone they can talk to about any problems or difficulties they may be facing in their high school. The Lone Star College Leadership High School Program is an incredible way for students to support each other and get more involved with their community.
