Tara Worley, the assistant principal, said she “felt the two marketing teachers would be able to relate to the Academy and work with Chick-fil-A.”

The Chick-fil-A Leader Academy is a national high school leadership program that provides students the platform they need to transform their school and impact their community. This year, more than 27,000 students in more than 40 states will develop their leadership skills and make an impact through action.

Over the course of the school year, the students’ leadership journey will go through monthly learning labs, which are designed to inspire the students. Students will be empowered to put the leadership principles they are learning into practice by executing three service projects.

The first activity the students completed at the kick-off event was to send a kit to the soldiers that consisted of hand sanitizer, screen cleaner, emery boards, mints and tissues. They also wrote a postcard thanking them for their service.

Justin Martinez said he was pleased to be accepted in the program. He is looking forward to learning about leadership and fine-tuning his skills. He also wants to lean about the operation of a business and how Chick-fil-A operates.
