Leadership Council has big winter plans


Sevastopol Leadership Council held a trivia night during a girls basketball game.

The Leadership Council hosts various events throughout the year, ranging from appreciation nights to raising money for someone in the community during basketball games.

The council also encourages members to create fun activities to keep students engaged in games.  On February 14, during a home boys’ game against Gibraltar, the council will host a relay race during halftime for all ages. 

The council also hopes to host a candlelight hike in February at the Eco Lab as a community giveback activity.

This school year marks the second year of the Leadership Council. The council’s goal is to be a support system for student-athletes and a place where students can build teamwork and leadership skills. 

“What I hope that students get out of leadership council is to see the unique leader that lies inside of themselves and to know that it is isn’t something that is reserved for certain people,” adviser and athletic director Brooke Tanck said. “In addition, I want to motivate student-athletes to want to be great in everything that they do. It’s just a choice.  If you want to get ahead in life, you have to have self-discipline, willpower, and consistency and fall in line with doing the little things that add up to great things.  I hope kids walk away feeling like they have more confidence to lead and better understand some basic principles about what it takes to be great.”

Tanck encourages more of the student body to be involved in the council since it’s one of the few places in the school where the students lead the discussions and find ways to participate more in the community. Leadership council is a good way to begin getting volunteer hours for scholarships too. Meetings are held every other Wednesday from 7:15-7:45 am.
