Students cultivate leadership skills in student council. For almost every student, Paragon marks the first opportunity to run for and be elected to student council by his or her classmates. This opportunity provides a tremendous boost to self-confidence.
Participants, from elementary to high school, learn how to run a campaign, write their own speeches, and commit to community projects such as food drives for the local food bank or care packages to active duty soldiers.
As a member of student council, I love being a part of doing things for the greater good of the community.
Jackson, High School Student
