Our Leadership day was held on Feb 9th and the Leadership topic we focused on was Community Building. We started at ICCU with Adrian Bybee presenting on Community Building and how you can apply it to your professional life and become a better leader.
February’s field trip day was centered on Education. Our first tour stop was Grace Lutheran School where Robert Raschke and one of his staff took us on a tour of not only the current school, but the new addition of the new gym and high school. They also were gracious enough to provide snacks and beverages! What an amazing program and a beautiful facility.
Our next stop was the School District #25 offices where Shelley Allen and Doug Howell gave us a tour of everything that is housed and supported from that location for all schools in the district. We had another great lunch from the Red Poppy that Cami Chopski was gracious enough to take the time out of her busy schedule to go and pick up so we could eat at the District Office. While we ate lunch, we were shown a great presentation by Rhonda Naftz regarding the new high school integrated math program and the CET/Advanced opportunities.
Our next stop was Pocatello High School where we had a chance to visit and talk to students and their instructors regarding the programs offered at Poky such as the CAN, EMT, Fireman and Auto mechanic. Although these programs are offered at Poky High, Century and Highland High School students also get to participate in these wonderful, life-learning programs. We were also educated about the School Levy that will be coming up in May. We concluded our informative day with the 2016-2017 Leadership class making final plans for their event which will be held April 8 at the Shoshone Bannock Hotel Event Center. This year’s event will totally “blow everyone’s minds” so mark your calendars now! Call the Chamber office for details and how your company can be involved.
