CMHS Hosts "Kids In The Hall"
CMHS Hosts Kids in the Hall Youth Leadership Symposium
On Monday, May 8, 2017, Crete-Monee High School Kids in the Hall Mentoring Group hosted a Youth Leadership Symposium. The event was attended by 20 panelists consisting of members from the business, community and government sectors. The panelists were divided into the three groups in the high school’s Media Center as each panel was facilitated by one of the KiH mentees.
“Nothing is wrong with working hard,” said Rep. Anthony DeLuca (80th District) in opening comments to the students. “There will be failures in life but leaders get back up,” he added.
Panelists in each of the three categories shared with students their definitions of leadership and what has helped them succeed in their particular fields. “Have a humble spirit, be a good person and a servant,” said University Park Mayor Vivian Covington.
“Your heart needs to be in whatever you do,” said Mrs. Jeanine Galbraith, CM 201-U Board of Education Secretary, who also encouraged students to learn to work along with others and be good listeners.
The Kids in the Hall Mentoring Group is sponsored by Dr. Nakia Hall, who serves as group leader. We look forward to more exciting events from KiH!
