My second year co-leading a LEAD Team has been nothing short of wonderfully chaotic and filled with many Robby Café mornings with my favorite people. Taking on Competition Day for the second year in a row has allowed me to grow even more within the Leadership Institute. Bellal and Abbey were amazing co-leaders and I am very fortunate to have created successful changes with them by my side. From grading applications, hosting interviews, and running all the logistics the day-of, Bellal, Abbey, and the rest of the team were phenomenal. I was a facilitator my freshmen year, so this was my third year seeing Competition Day from the other side, however, it was by far the most smoothly ran and most calm that I have ever seen it.
I owe all this to the wonderful team of leaders, and while I am sad to say that this was my last year leading for the beloved comp-day squad, we went out with a bang. As I will still be around quite a bit in the fall to help, I will be student teaching during next year’s spring semester. However, I have all the confidence in the world that Abbey and her new team will continue to create amazing changes and find the best leaders out there.
