“The teacher and the student create the learning” is a statement I heard years ago and has always resonated with me.

Earlier in November, the new members of the 2018-2019 GLSLP Leadership Advisory Council convened at the Center for Creative Leadership in Greensboro. They met with the GLSLP staff to discuss goals for their fellow scholars this upcoming year. The new members participated in team building activities, event planning sessions, and were able to talk via phone to the President of the Golden LEAF Foundation, Dan Gerlach. These leadership activities allowed them open up to each other and develop peer relationships.
“Getting to meet with the GLSLP staff and see the LAC board in person allowed us to create the needed bonds to help us during our term. It was a great experience to meet with this group and we can’t wait to serve on the LAC board this year!” -New LAC member and Year 3 scholar, Taylor Chappell
