HOBY TXCA 2019 Leadership Seminar: Day 1 Update

Today has been packed with activities!

Our day started off with loads of cheers and icebreakers for the ambassadors. The ambassadors were divided into their small animal groups and created their group chants.  

Our students heard two guest keynote speakers today: Chris “Shoof” Scheufele and Clint Tuttle.

Shoof spoke to the personal leadership component of our curriculum and shared his personal experiences with bullying. He discussed how to handle situations involving bullying. He helped the ambassadors learn how to build confidence to let them be defined by themselves and not others.

On a societal leadership level, Clint Tuttle enlightened the group on the utility of failure. While failing is not easy to accept, learning from those experiences is valuable and essential to succeed.

Several staff members shared their experiences volunteering in their communities to show examples of how to serve in theirs for causes they are passionate about. Ambassadors brainstormed ways they could make change in their hometowns.

Ambassadors have been breaking out of their comfort zones and growing as leaders. The day was ended with a social event with music, dancing, and games. It was a fun event to finish off a productive day.

A huge thank you to Jason’s Deli, Tiff’s Treats, and Cabo Bob’s for the food they provided to the seminar!
