The 2018 class of Student Leadership Johns Creek (SLJC) held their graduation ceremony and induction of their new class at Chattahoochee High School. Mayor Mike Bodker, Georgia Revenue Commissioner Lynne Riley, and Fulton County School Superintendent Dr. Jeff Rose were guest speakers at the ceremony. School Board Vice-President Linda McCain and Fulton County Schools Chief Academic Officer Cliff Jones presented graduation cords and completion certificates to all 45 Student Leadership Johns Creek graduates.
This is a two-year program that involves student leaders from all four Johns Creek High Schools. Participants in the first-year program learn valuable leadership skills by adopting a community service project and documenting the difference their participating made. In addition, the student attend various program dates and learn about their state and city government. Students in the second-year work more independently, they complete two multi-media projects; one a personal portfolio exploring resume building, which serves them well as they begin the college application process. In addition, the students work with business professionals on mock interviewing skills and proper ways to manage their digital footprint. This year we are excited that the students will be working with area seniors on inter-generational mentoring using web devices. The second project is to shadow a business professional in a field they are considering pursuing. The business leaders in Johns Creek have been extremely receptive to the students being their shadow for a day and have included Marilyn Margolis, CEO at Emory Johns Creek Hospital, Mayor Mike Bodker, Revenue Commissioner Lynne Riley, medical professionals from the area, and marketing experts in many of the area’s top business firms.
