Student Leadership Seminar Inspires High School Students

Each year, the Student Leadership Seminar, started in 2010 by the UHealth Sports Performance and Wellness Institute, brings together high school students with leadership potential to hear from a number of speakers, participate in team-building exercises, and have the opportunity to speak with high profile panelists. The day-long program focuses on developing leadership qualities, succeeding in and out of school, creating a personalized brand, and preparing for college.

This year’s seminar, held on June 17, attracted more than 80 students eager to hear from an impressive roster of guest speakers.
