Leadership Southwestern students Taylor Fogle and Stevie Heidzig recently partnered with first graders from Country View Elementary in Winfield for “Elementary Leadership.”
Fogle and Heidzig designed an interactive curriculum centered upon the movie “Finding Nemo” to teach the first graders about behaviors of a servant leader. As a part of the day, the first graders brainstormed service ideas for their school. A total of 28 elementary students participated in the event, and Julie Wilke, a Southwestern graduate, served as the primary contact in the collaboration between the schools.
“It was so much fun working with these kids, and it was really gratifying knowing that we helped to start their leadership journey,” Fogle said.
