Southeastern Tech Attends Georgia Fall Leadership Conference
November 28, 2012 - Students and staff from Southeastern Technical College attended the Georgia Fall Leadership Conference in Atlanta on November 16-18.
Eighteen students and five advisors made the trip to the Renaissance Waverly hotel in Atlanta. The conference, held every year on the third weekend of November, gave members of all of Georgia's technical college student organizations opportunities to improve their leadership skills.
"Southeastern Tech recognizes the importance of preparing students for the workforce through both classroom and extracurricular activities," said Helen Thomas, STC's conference coordinator for the event.
"The Georgia Fall Leadership Conference is just one of the numerous extracurricular activities supported by Southeastern Tech that provides opportunities for students to develop, enhance, and exercise their leadership skills as they prepare for the workforce," said Thomas.
Student organizations Phi Beta Lambda, SkillsUSA, and Student Leadership Council represented both the Swainsboro and Vidalia campuses at the conference, which included breakout sessions and presentations from staff members of Georgia technical colleges and professionals from a variety of fields.
"The conference provides an opportunity for students to attend interactive leadership sessions, network with peers, and participate in community service activities such as a March of Dimes walk and a Toys for Tots drive," said Thomas. "Everyone gets to have a lot of fun."
