RONALD REAGAN PRESIDENTIAL FOUNDATION SUMMER PROGRAM
The Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation has developed a new summer program aimed at increasing the civic engagement of student leaders—the Ronald Reagan Student Leadership Program. This four day program will develop leadership skills with a goal of accomplishing the following task:
Identify a problem in the community and create an extensive Leadership Action Plan which details a pathway for addressing that problem. To help them create their Leadership Action Plan, students will explore concepts of:
Effective Communication (The Great Communicator)
Optimism (It CAN Be Done)
Informed Decision Making (Governor and President)
Royal students who participate in this three-day program at the Reagan Library this summer will be well on their way to earning the Presidential Diploma Seal upon graduation. There is no cost to students for this program, but there is an application process. I hope that many of our Royal High students will apply and attend this wonderful program. Please visit the site below to get more information and then, apply!
