Santee Chamber Weekly Update 02FEB23
Yesterday I joined fellow staff and Chamber members on campus at Carlton Hill's junior high building for Gifted Talented Strong (GTS) Leadership Club hosted by Momentum Tutoring. This program was designed to help students counterbalance the negative effects of COVID-19 while expecting more from themselves and making a greater contribution to others and to society.
I was able to join a panel of adults to talk to the students about leadership in the community. We discussed overcoming obstacles, finding your passion and encouraged them to explore ways to give back in areas of their life that mean something to them. We also shared personal experiences from when we were their age and how it (unknowingly) has helped lead us into our current careers. Thanks so much to Terri and her team at Momentum for putting this together, including us as part of the process, and for always encouraging their students to be excellent.
