Stevenson students laying wreath at unknown soldier

This year, 24 members of Stevenson Student Council attended the Lead Conference in Washington, D.C, put on by the NASSP, which includes student councils and NHS.

The conference is intended to bring leaders together from across the country and allow us to share ideas with each other.

The key note speakers were meant to inspire us to be the future leaders of our generation and how to promote change. Also, we were given lessons on how to include everybody in our school through various activities.

While in Washington, D.C, we were granted the privilege to lay a wreath bearing our school’s name at the Tomb of The Unknown Soldier.

Our visit to Arlington National Cemetery was a humbling experience and allowed us to remember those who bravely fought for our country and made the ultimate sacrifice. We also visited the many memorials throughout our nation’s capital.

It was a truly amazing experience for everybody on our council and allows us to bring many of the ideas we learned back to our school.
