The formal name is the "Honors Principles of Leadership Class"--let's just call it the Lead Class... Anyway, over the next few months, we'll learn more about ourselves, the person(s) sitting next to us, and how we can improve our leadership skills. We'll begin with theory before moving to application pieces and have fun doing it! Also, communications applications will be interspersed throughout the course.

I'll use this blog primarily to document the agenda for each day and it will include readings and homework. If you are missing an assignment or just want to know what we did in class due to an absence, check this blog,  the Daily Record (to be explained in class), and your table mate.   

Let's have a great year!!
