2017 SUPERINTENDENT’S STUDENT LEADERSHIP FORUM
On Wednesday, March 22, 2017, the Department of Student Life and Services, directed by Mr. Franklin Walker, Associate Superintendent and Ms. Paula Christen, Director, hosted the 2017 Superintendent’s Student Leadership Forum. Approximately 700 students in Grades 6 through 12 participated from every middle, elementary, and high school.
The agenda for the day included a presentation by Dr. Marcia Lyles, Superintendent, City Wide Student Council moderators, debate panels from every high school, student performances, on line polling, presentations by alumni, and former City Wide Student Council students. The debate topics were decided by the City Wide Student Council members. The Jersey City and Visual Performing Arts Band directed by Mr. Larry Puentes and Mr. David Luquette, the Snyder High School Dancers directed by Gina Statile, and the Snyder High School Tigerettes directed by Principal Yvonne Waller, all performed.
The students, who participated, were selected by their administrators, teachers, and school counselors. They were selected based on community service, character, academic accomplishments, overcoming obstacles, and a consistent display of leadership qualities. One student was chosen for the Distinguished Leadership Award. The students listed were the students receiving the Distinguished Leadership Award for the 2017 Superintendent's Student Leadership Forum. Congratulations to all the students who participated for demonstrating outstanding leadership within their schools and communities.
