An important 21st century skill is the ability to collaborate and share ideas among teams with similar goals. Fishers High School student government leaders did exactly that recently, when they traveled to the HCC Leadership Conference at Avon High school. For an entire day, student leaders from many Indianapolis-area locations connected on topics such as fundraising, community service, communication and school spirit. Each school’s student government shared experiences in these areas that other schools could adapt and use at home. Student-led discussions fostered brainstorming and the generation of new ideas and plans. Participants left with insight into student government AND into what it means to connect and collaborate with likeminded teams.
