SPCHS Class of 2023 members Emerson Morris and Thomas Owen have been selected to attend The Lott Institute for Rising Ninth Graders.
This program is a partnership between the University of Mississippi’s Lott Leadership Institute and The University of Mississippi Division of Outreach. This is a program designed to develop critical thinking and leadership skills in soon-to-be high school freshmen. Its aim is to cultivate and inspire honest, compassionate, and responsive leaders who will focus on responsibility and stewardship.
Accepted students come from throughout the state of Mississippi. They are given a residential experience on the Ole Miss campus, earn high school credit, study public policy and leadership, all while forming bonds with peers in the program. As part of the experience, students mingle with college administrators, student leaders and active community members while participating in current event discussions and decision-making activities. During the program, participants take a trip to Little Rock, Arkansas to tour Heifer International, the Clinton Presidential Center, and Little Rock Central High School. Students will also participate in a service project to drive home the notion of stewardship from our leaders.
SPCHS Class of 2020 Member Teal Salloum has been selected for the 20th Annual Summer Leadership Institute For High School Students.
The Summer Leadership Institute for High School Students is a partnership between the University of Mississippi’s Lott Leadership Institute and The University of Mississippi Division of Outreach’s Summer College for High School Students. The goals of the program are to develop leadership skills in young citizens and prepare them for college. In order to achieve these goals, the Summer Leadership Institute brings together student leaders from across the Southeast to earn college credit on the UM campus and to begin the study of leadership.
Included in the program are opportunities to mingle with college administrators, student leaders, and community leaders while participating in current event debates, discussions, and decision-making activities. The program culminates with a one-week trip to Washington, D.C., during which the participants see the federal government in action, hear from national leaders, and tour the nation’s Capitol. The ideal outcome is for students who complete the program to return to their high schools and put their new skills to work for the betterment of their own schools and communities.
Congratulations to all students for being accepted!
