The adults that attend HSLC this year will get to participate in several sessions that have parallel curriculum to the students. All advisors who attend our speaking sessions will receive a number of CEU credits. We look forward to having our keynote speaker, Dr. Ainsley Carry speak to our adults at one session. It is important to us that the adults learn and experience the same as the students at HSLC. That way, both adults and students can go back to their high schools and take action on their new leadership knowledge.
