Welcome to the first Leaders Connection since our 2017 annual meeting in June! It was great to have 143 students in attendance.

Thank you for setting an example of leadership as you interacted with or mentored students.

“If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.”

— John Quincy Adams
