Leadership Workshop delegates and staff take a break from the day’s festivities, lessons, and games to pose for a yearbook photo at Ocean Lakes High School on March 12.

Leadership workshop returns to Ocean Lakes, on March 11 and 12, after two years of hiatus due to COVID-19.  

Over 120 delegates, as well as 24 student staff and three teacher advisors attended the two-day event.

“We spent many months planning workshop to make it as perfect as possible,” said Leadership staff Maggie Furco, senior.

The delegates participated in activities, such as skits, in order to encourage the building of teamwork skills. They also learned different leadership skills, by collaborating to reach common goals.

“I really liked the lesson Ms. Rosado and Mr. Cartwright did on comfort zones. Doing things outside your comfort zone can lead to great things,” said freshman, Chloe Purvis, a first-time attendant.

The staff split into multiple groups based on each others’ strengths in order to plan this massive event.

“As Workshop got closer we were all working together to get things done, said Maggie. “It was really cool to see everything we planned to fit together.
