Six members of the National Honor Society from Heritage High School are scheduled to attend the Leadership Experience and Development (LEAD) Conference Nov. 9-11 in Tempe, Arizona. The LEAD Conference is a program of the National

Students Cheyenne Courvoisier, Jorge Esmerio, Rico Lomarda, Amanda McCurry, Stephanie Pomales, and Vince Vanterpool II will attend workshops on identifying the critical problems facing youth today, combating and preventing bullying, developing leadership skills, networking and sharing ideas, and much more. In addition, these National Honor Society members will participate in special sessions presented by popular
motivational speakers that will address methods to improve school climate and empower student leaders to become the positive change in their schools and communities.

"We are excited about returning from the Conference with new skills to positively impact our school and
LEAD Conferences are increasingly popular in the U.S. and abroad. Attendance at each weekend conference includes representatives from an average of 27 states. In recent years, the LEAD Conferences have also attracted a more global audience with student delegations coming from countries including Bermuda, Mexico, Virgin Islands, Thailand, Taiwan, Turkey, Haiti, and Puerto Rico.
The attendance by these groups has enriched the conference experience for all attendees and provided a unique, multicultural networking opportunity for student leaders who discover their similar goals to improve their schools and communities through their leadership activities.
