Seniors selected to attend Wisconsin Leaders of Tomorrow program

From club presidents to team captains, the Wisconsin Leaders of Tomorrow program highlights students from across the Brookfield area for their leadership in various aspects of the community. It is an opportunity for them to learn new skills and improve their leadership. This year the program was altered from previous years and focused more on Leaders of Tomorrow.

The two grand prize winners received a scholarship to attend the World Affairs Seminar at Carroll College. This year, thirteen Brookfield Central students participated in the program. The program is set up so that the students have to complete various tasks to win the grand prize at the end. Each part of the competition is factored into the final decision; although last year there were category specific awards, this year was a bit different.

First, you have to complete a leadership resume that talks about your academics and accomplishments throughout your high school career. Second, you have to write a social challenge essay about what your generation will have to overcome and a possible solution for the issue. Third, you must complete an interview with a community leader business leader. Lastly, you must attend a leadership workshop with the other applicants where you discuss issues and grow as a leader.

This year the two grand prize winners were Kevin Jacobson(‘19) from Brookfield Central and Victoria Toledo(‘19) from Brookfield Academy. The two winners were given the opportunity to attend the World Affairs Seminar the week of June 23, where leaders from around the world came to participate in leadership training and discuss world issues.
