This morning, the Sorensen High School Leaders Program began the day with brunch and the World Cup. We watched France defeat Croatia to start off our day ( VIVE LE FRANCE). Afterward, we split into three random groups to play a fun game. The game was a type of charades, but instead of never being able to talk, we decreased the number of words we could say from 3 to 0 every round.
We are excited to announce the class for the 2018 Emerging Leaders Program. This group of 21 participants will meet in Millwood, Virginia at the end of July, in Richmond in August, and again in Millwood in September. Throughout this time, they will hone leadership skills, craft public policy for the General Assembly, and develop strong friendships. The 2018 Emerging Leaders Program is sponsored by Dominion. We are excited to welcome these great leaders to the program!
