Boone County Kiwanis Leadership Teams (Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors)

Each year, ten sophomore students are chosen to represent Western Boone (along with students from each of the other high schools in Boone County). These students will be selected by teacher and staff nomination as being students of outstanding personal character and ability to display leadership qualities such as being respectful, trustworthy, responsible, influential, motivated, & honorable in behavior and attitude. This group will work together with peers from Lebanon and Zionsville High Schools to explore leadership and global issues both in the county, state, and country. Students will have the opportunity to tour areas in each of the school districts, hear from leaders and practice leadership skills. The goal of this program is to develop students’ awareness of leadership principles and the potential they have to make a positive impact on our community. Students chosen as sophomores will be invited to continue involvement in the program as juniors and seniors in creating more hands-on, student-facilitated leadership projects.
