Events and Programs

Junior Leadership Forum

The flagship annual event for the Leadership San Angelo Alumni Association is the Junior Leadership Forum, which is usually held in January. The forum brings more than 100 high school sophomore students from the Concho Valley area together for a one-day training session on how to gain leadership skills and utilize those skills they already possess. Students who show capacity for leadership, but are not necessarily in current leadership roles, are selected for participation by the officials from each school.

Round table luncheon speakers at the event include  the mayor, city and county officials, TV and radio personalities, as well as leaders in the judicial, educational, and healthcare professions.

Facilitators for the workshop session are graduates of the Leadership San Angelo program.

If you would like to volunteer to organize the event, please contact the Junior Leadership Forum Chairman Kit Wyatt at kit@masseybalentine.com.
