Texas teens across the state gained skills in goal setting, team building, problem solving, and project planning through interactive methods at Texas Association of Student Council (TASC) Leadership Workshops.

Sydney Ross, Francesca Carvajal, Valeri Smith, and Maria Kind represented Floresville High School as delegates to the workshop at Texas State University in San Marcos in July. During five days of rigorous training and project-based learning, they gained the tools and knowledge necessary to improve the effectiveness of Student Council and National Honor Society at Floresville High School.

“I attended this workshop to sharpen my leadership skills and I am excited to be able to use the skills I learned not only as president of National Honor Society but also to be successful in the future,” said Valeri Smith.

The workshop theme of G.R.O.W. (Go Reach Our World) encouraged student leaders to work collectively to improve their schools and communities.

“One of the most important things I learned at the workshop is different techniques and ideas to make our Student Council better. I will use these to strengthen and shape Floresville High School’s Student Council to make it the best that it can possibly be this school year,” said Sydney Ross. “I appreciate our FHS principal, Mrs. Sandra Galinzoga, to allow us to attend this workshop. We intend to make full use of everything we learned.”

“Our students were amazing,” said Marti Blose, advisor for Student Council. “They represented Floresville High School extremely well as they worked with student leaders from across the state of Texas.”

TASC is a nonprofit serving high school and middle level student councils in Texas. Sponsored by the Texas Association of Secondary School Principals, its purpose is to develop leadership abilities in students, promote democracy as a way of life, and establish and uphold high standards for local councils. With more than 1,250 member schools, it is the largest student leadership organization in the United States.
