Leadership Johnson County – For more than 20 years, Leadership Johnson County (LJC) has educated and engaged professional members of the local community. Often, LJC graduates participate in the student learning experience in order to enhance students’ leadership and professional development.
As a freshman, the most meaningful aspects of the leadership program thus far have been the class projects. I have learned a lot about leadership through classroom activities, but this learning does not compare to actually making something happen. In class, student teams have been challenged to brainstorm and decide on ideas and then design and execute a plan. I think major projects have been the source of my greatest learning because experiences truly help shape you as a leader. - Kayla Majors '19
Leadership program is very hands-on, flexible, and engaging for all students. Dale Rebhorn, the Director of Leadership Development, is a mentor to and role model for many students. The Leadership program provides students opportunities to engage with new and diverse cultures, events and people. I have been challenged by discussions, readings, case studies, theories, and examples of leadership. These experiences have reaffirmed my decision to minor in Leadership. - Kayla Walker '17
