OESJ Athletes Attend WAC Leadership Conference

Students in grades 7-12 were chosen to attend the Western Athletic Conference

(WAC) Leadership Conference held at FMCC. There, they listened to a guest speaker about what it takes to be a leader and knowing your role on a sports team. He also stressed the importance of academics and how scholarship should come first in a student/athlete's life because the reality is that very few high school ball players will go on to play at the college level.  The students were then broken into groups, where they participated in activities with students from all of the other school districts from the WAC. It was a great afternoon for the students to mingle with students whom they have only seen as adversaries in athletics.
