National Leadership Academy has done so much for our students in Rockwood School District and the leadership skills learned are guiding the district to new directions in terms of service, love for others, and an admiration for differences. In light of some of the civil unrest in the St. Louis area as of late, it has been amazing watching our NLA students in action. Quite simply, they get it…Dr. James WipkeSuperintendent, St Louis, MO
National Leadership Academy was truly a game-changer for our daughter, Lauren. She has always been a confident young woman, but her time at NLA, spent with peers who were seeking inspiration to make an impact on their world, was very significant for her. In those few short days, she was encouraged and empowered by the dynamic group of speakers and presenters, as well as impacted greatly by the community service opportunities. She returned to her community inspired to make a difference.Lindsay and Terry Adams,Parents of NLA Alumna
