We are very proud to announce that Dayra Nuno, an 11th grader at CAS High School Douglas Campus, has been accepted to the prestigious César E. Chávez Leadership Institute at Arizona State University in Phoenix this Summer! The Institute runs from June 7-13th, 2015. The César E. Chávez Leadership Institute is a week-long summer program filled with workshops, lectures and activities designed to build communication skills, develop critical thinking, and inspire a passion for community service. Students are selected for this institute based on a minimum criteria of a 3.0 GPA, demonstrated leadership capacity, community volunteerism, and a written essay submitted by the student.
Several students from CAS High School attended the Youth Leadership Conference in Somerton, AZ on March 13 and 14th. Students from Cocopah, San Luis, and Somerton attended the conference which was themed “The Courage to Speak.”
The theme centered around helping students become encouraged to speak their opinions and to exercise leadership within their schools and local communities. There was a reception and dinner on the first night. Main speakers and breakout sessions continued on Saturday with a Comic Festival at the end of the day. The students learned a lot about student leadership and activism and had a great time.
