The Randolph Community College Foundation has established a high school leadership development program for rising ninth graders that is modeled after RCC’s prestigious Student Leadership Academy. The Randolph Community College High School Leadership Academy will be a one-day event that will focus on topics such as the definition of leadership; team building; personality types and leadership styles; social media, communication and leadership; conflict resolution; situational leadership; and servant leadership, according to Lorie McCroskey, RCC’s director of development.
Rising freshmen who live and will attend school in Randolph County in the fall of 2014 and are in good academic standing are eligible to apply. The Academy will take place from 8:30 a.m.-6 p.m. on Tuesday, June 17, at the Foundation Conference Center on the Asheboro Campus.
Interested students must complete an application form available from middle school counselors or at the Foundation office, write a brief essay on leadership, and submit three reference letters. Completed application packets are due back to the RCC Foundation by Wednesday, April 30, at 5 p.m.
For more information about the Academy, application form, or application process, contact McCroskey at firstname.lastname@example.org or 336-633-1118.
