Summer Latino Leadership Summit provides opportunities for future students

(03-16-2012)

High school sophomores and juniors are encouraged to attend the Adams State College's Latino Leadership Summit. Fifty students will be selected to participate in the summit's events on July 2, 3, and 4, 2012, that will provide an opportunity to obtain a scholarship to Adams State and a single concurrent enrollment credit in leadership.

Activities will include leadership workshops led by current Adams State students and the opportunity to experience the school's unique environment. Students will also be able to network with other potential students before attending or selecting to attend the college.

All current sophomores and juniors in high school should apply. Priority will be given to those that can demonstrate a commitment to leadership development or opportunities to increase leadership in the community. A one-time registration fee of $200 includes three days housing, workshops, trips, and all meals. Scholarships are available on a limited basis.

The valuable skills obtained from this experience will be applicable to college experiences at any college or university and are very appealing to future employers.

The event is sponsored by a FIPSE (Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education) grant, Enrollment Management, Student Life and Recreation, Extended Studies, and Higher Education Administration & Leadership (HEAL).
