2014 Leadership Academy

By | | Virginia TSA

November 14-15 saw 136 Virginia TSA members and advisors gathering at the Hilton Garden Inn in Colonial Heights, VA. for the annual Leadership Academy. The goal of this Leadership Event is to encourage and develop leadership among Virginia TSA members to use at the local, state and national levels. Friday evening was a time to get to know one another and hear what caused the current Virginia TSA Executive council to become interested in being leaders. Several Ice Breaker activities were held and a meet and greet time with the state officer team ended the evening.  On Saturday morning groups were rotated through a series of sessions to help develop students skills in leadership. During the afternoon those groups competed in competitions designed to reinforce those skills. During the closing session the 1,2 & 3 place teams were recognized respectfully with Gold, Silver or Bronze TSA medals. Lots of good food and fellowship was enjoyed throughout the weekend. Hope to see you at Leadership Academy next year!!
