Student Leadership Academy

Thank you Open Roads Complete RV for sponsoring the 2020 Student Leadership Academy!

The Student Leadership Academy is designed to provide a select group of students with workplace skills while also giving them a vested knowledge about leadership development.
This program will help develop students academically to become creative and innovative and to become effective leaders in the workplace. It will also allow the students to benefit through development of a mentoring relationship with members/facilitators of the Student Leadership Academy.
