WBOY: West Virginia Student Leadership Conference Kicks Off in Jackson’s Mill

Full Story

College students from around the state are learning more about how to lead at Jackson’s Mill this week.

The West Virginia Student Leadership Conference kicked off in Jackson’s Mill Monday.

The annual event connects students to campus leaders from around the state to help engage their campuses and each other.

Organizers said that’s exactly how they want to enable their students.

“We want to help them be more effective leaders. We know our students want to lead, and we think part of leadership is learning how to be better at that. Leadership is a skill that can be taught, and we’re doing that through this experience,” said Tom Segar, Shepherd University.

The conference continues through tomorrow.
