Students at Osbourn High School are getting a unique leadership opportunity as participants in the Chick-fil-A Leader Academy.
Osbourn teacher Robin Albrecht applied for the program for her students last year.
“Last year I had the opportunity to apply for a grant through Chick-fil-a to become a participant in the Chick-fil-a Leadership Academy,” said Albrecht.
According to the program’s website, the academy is “a national high school leadership program focused on impact through action.”
The program accepted her 70 leadership class students, and the local franchise owner of the Liberia Avenue/Signal Hill Chick-fil-A location George Snyder covered the $4,000 cost for the students to participate.
Students participated in the program kickoff today, completing fun activities and working together as a team to portion, package, and track food items that will be donated to charity.
“It is my hope that through this partnership with Osbourn High School and Chick-fil-a, that the students learn, get an appreciation for what being a leader is, and what it means to give back to their community through the community services projects that they will be doing,” said Albrecht.
In the spring, the students will be completing an “Impact Project” in the community, and the student leaders will be encouraged to get other students involved.
