Today, three Solebury School students — Devon B. '18, Emma S. '19, Addie G. '19 — will begin the nine-day Strive: How You Lead Matters program in Middletown, Delaware. The program is designed to develop character-based leaders and applies the same rigor of sports training to the practice of leadership.
Last summer, Jacob G. '18 attended the program (see photo). He left a better soccer player, team captain and leader.
"This program honestly changed my life," Jacob told us earlier this year. "And from what I've heard from those close to me, it made me a better person all around. It taught me how to lead others. How to help myself while leading others. How to help those I was trying to lead."
Jacob was elected one of Solebury School's community council presidents this spring.
Good luck to Devon, Emma and Addie!
