Diverse South King county students in the Auburn and Kent School Districts, participated in a Leadership Seminar with Puget Sound Energy's Vice President, Mrs. Marla Mellies. The group discussed the importance of accountability and upholding to commitments because these two attributes make a business or organization strong. Being part of a team requires the group to value each member and strategize who should do what based on their gifts, because everyone has something to be offered. Mrs. Mellies believes that a leader should be more focused on being respected, then liked, otherwise people will treat you how you let them treat you.
In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day, a delegation of diverse ICL students visited the State Capital in Olympia, where they had the privilege to meet with legislators from multiple districts. The students, from four school districts, extended their gratitude to the legislators for their public service, discussed Dr. King's legacy with them, and presented them with a poster in King's honor. Meetings included a special set with Representative Pat Sullivan, where students discussed King's legacy and it's impact on our public schools. We would not be the diverse world, we are today, if it was not for all the work of Dr. King and the Civil Rights Movement.
The Institute for Community Leadership presents at over seventeen events honoring Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. this month. ICL students spent eight days studying the Life and Legacy of Dr. King in intensive classes during the Winter holiday. They prepared presentations to educate and uplift.
