The leadership program for rising seniors in the Hanover School District is, at this moment, tentative. The project itself is a joint program between Hanover County School District and the Jepson School of Leadership Studies. ... The program has three parts; one, a summer leadership seminar preceding the senior school year; two, a senior project during the school year; and three, a mentorship program during the senior school year. It is hoped that the students will receive an experience that will stress the importance of moral courage, empathy for diverse opinions, and an understanding of the responsibilities of citizenship. While the above three areas are intangible, they represent what I feel to be at the center of true leadership.
