RHS students attend Leadership Conference at Curry College
Twenty-one sophomore and junior girls attended a Leadership in Action conference at Curry College on Tuesday, March 12. The conference was sponsored by the Women’s Business Connection of the South Shore Chamber of Commerce.
RHS sophomore Megan Khang started the conference with a keynote address in which she talked about her experiences as an accomplished golfer. Megan qualified for the U.S. Women’s Open last summer at the age of 14. She also explained that her experience has taught her to work hard and reach for her goals.
After the keynote speech, the participants broke up into four groups and attended seminars on the pros and cons of social media, how to become more organized and accomplish your goals, the value of relaxing and focusing your energy, and the importance of a healthy lifestyle in achieving success.
After lunch in the Curry cafeteria, the conference ended with a panel discussion that was led by TV personality Kim Carrigan. The women on the panel, all successful in different fields such as law enforcement, politics, health and fitness management, and manufacturing, inspired the girls with their stories of success, but also the “speed bumps” they had to go through to achieve their dreams.
