Fort Hays State University's Center for Civic Leadership will answer the question "How is leadership important?" during the Spring 2006 Leaderville Series, which focuses on the importance of leadership to all aspects of business and community.
Leaderville is a series of workshops designed to increase leadership skills for college students, FHSU faculty, staff and members of the Hays community.
Each session, facilitated by a community or campus leader, begins at 6 p.m. Participants who attend four of the six sessions will receive a certificate of completion from the Center for Civic Leadership.
The first workshop of the series was Jan. 31 at Hays Public Library. Nancy Jeter, Big Brothers/Big Sisters director, led the discussion on Non-profit Organizations and Leadership. The session can be viewed by visiting http://www.fhsu.edu/ccl/lead.shtml.
All of the workshops will be recorded and available to view at that website.
Anyone unable to attend the workshops can watch four sessions online to receive a certificate of completion.
The second workshop will be Governmental Leadership, led by State Representative Eber Phelps, on Feb. 28 in Davis Hall, room 211, on the FHSU campus.
In the third session, March 14, participants will focus on the Kansas Youth Leadership Academy. Kelley Kuhlmann, KYLA director, will lead the discussion at the Hays Public Library.
Locations for the last three workshops have not been announced.
