This application represents a significant departure from the standard way of selecting student leaders. In addition, some leadership positions have been added or deleted to better fit our current organization. If you have any questions about the process or your application, please do not hesitate to contact Mrs. Muñoz at any time.
Your candidacy will be judged on the following criteria:
1. Past performance
2. Quality of your application
3. Future leadership potential
4. Best fit for the individual and organization

When completing the application, be thorough, complete, creative, and honest. Don’t say what you think we might want to hear. Say what you really think. Leaders are people who can offer something new and different to the organization. This application process is structured so that you will gain insights into yourself as a person, so please be honest and thorough. You need to open up and show the person you truly are, and/or what you aspire to be. Dig deep inside, answer the questions, and complete the service project with the intent of learning something new.

Your answer
“Many young people see a leadership position as a chance to be in charge, to tell others what to do, to delegate work, and to put themselves in a posture of authority. Nothing could be further from the truth. The essence of a effective leader lies in the student's ability to serve others, to create success for the people in the organization. It is the opportunity to give, to contribute, to roll up one's sleeves and begin moving in a positive direction. Whether it is straightening the chairs, putting the stands away, creating a colorful bulletin board, or working with someone on a musical passage, the leader is the person who does: “What needs to be done, when it needs to be done, whether he/she wants to do it or not, without asking anyone.”
Dr. Tim Lautzenheiser
