This photo shows a group
of us from the Leadership
Retreat. This was an
overnight event at which
time we spend time
together as a group doing
many group activities. It
was important because
we planned activities for
the following school year.
This photo is of me
dressed up once I was
„purchased‟ at the senior
auction. The girl that
bought me picked out my
outfit (no, it wasn‟t
something in my closet!)
Proceeds from this
auction went to raising
money for the school for
things such as; water
refilling stations, picnic
tables etc

impact on our school.
 Meeting these types of leaders has
helped me to define my idea of a leader.
