Honoring Bob and Susan
Not only was the 2nd annual Spirit of Leadership alumni and friends event an opportunity to celebrate, but it was an evening to honor those who helped us get to where we are today. Beginning in 1996 as simply an idea, 11 students and some key players, The School of Leadership Studies has blossomed into a program that is helping teachers and students learn from one another daily. However, we realize that without the vision and dream of a few key players, The School of Leadership Studies would not have been possible. We are so thankful that we had the opportunity to highlight both Susan Scott and Robert Shoop and their contributions to the School of Leadership Studies during the Spirit of Leadership.
Thank you both for making your dream our dream and for making that dream a reality.
