Students of the Jefferson Community College Campus Activities Board, student government and student ambassadors received the 2013 Northeast Region Program of the Year Award from the Association for the Promotion of Campus Activities for their collaborative work organizing Leadership Day on Oct. 24.
Leadership Day was designed to enhance and develop leadership skills of high school and JCC students. Since its launch in 2008, 15 area high schools have attended Leadership Day. The program features a keynote speaker and sessions on team building and goal setting. The 2013 Leadership Day included keynote speaker Frank Warren, founder of the Internet sensation PostSecret; Playfair, an interactive program on team-building, campus unity and school spirit, and David Garibaldi, rock and roll painter.
As a result of receiving the regional recognition, Leadership Day will qualify for National Program of the Year award consideration.
