26th Annual Best Buddies Leadership Conference: I’m IN
When asked about the students’ & faculties’ overall experience at LC, Maui’s new Program Manager Alison Somilleda replied, “I think the best thing to focus on for experience this year is how the students really came out of their shells and saw the true importance of building friendships through Best Buddies.
The students started their trip all being fairly reserved, but as the days went by, I observed them really starting to focus on team building and leadership roles.
They seemed really excited about the upcoming school year and were brainstorming ideas together, even though they go to different schools, on how to build stronger chapters.
It was really great to see. The faculty advisers were also very supportive of the students throughout the conference.”
Congratulations go out to Maui High for (once again) earning & receiving Hawaii’s ‘Best High School Chapter’ award and Kailua Intermediate School for earning / receiving Hawaii’s Outstanding Middle School Chapter Award. So proud of you all! Mahalo & please keep up the enthusiasm & momentum for this new school year!
