GASC REGISTRATION CLOSES THIS FRIDAY 1/24!
PILLAR 1: LEADERSHIP
The annual GASC convention will take place from February 21-23, 2020 at Rock Eagle 4-H Camp in Eatonton, GA.
”It is always our own self that we find at the end of the journey. The sooner we face that self, the better.” – Ella Maillart
While attending convention this year students and advisers will learn the importance of "Exploring Your Inner Leader!" Together, as Swiss adventurer Ella Maillart tells us, we will find out more about our inner quirks and talents by embarking on the adventure that will be GASC State Convention 2020. To truly become a productive leader in the community, one must know how they operate like inner strengths and weaknesses, leadership styles, how they react to conflict, and so much more. Throughout convention we will provide workshops, keynotes, reflection time, networking opportunities, and more to ensure that delegates have the opportunities to not only learn about themselves, but to also find out how knowing about themselves will unlock their potential for growth to become stronger leaders.
On day one we will 'Board the Ship' and ensure all delegates come with passion and motivation to complete any task that comes their way.
Day two we will 'Learn the Ropes,' and gain lots of valuable leadership training, strategies, and other information that will help us navigate our way through the vast sea that is leadership. At the end of this day we will party with the stars that helped us map our way across the ocean in the Galaxy Gala.
Then finally on Day Three, as we say our goodbyes, we will continue to Embark on our Leadership Adventures! So join us on our journey at GASC State Convention 2020 as we "Explore Your Inner Leader!"

School: North Gwinnett High School
Favorite Quote: ""The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams." - Eleanor Roosevelt
"I consider my mom my greatest mentor and best friend; not only is she the strongest, wisest, and most kindhearted person I know, but she is so passionate about what she believes in, and I am fortunate enough to be someone that she believes in fully. Throughout my life, she has taught me the meaning of selfless sacrifice and support through her actions towards me, and I strive to embody the same sense of dedication and compassion that she has shown me," Khushi says. Outside of StuCo, she is an officer in NHS and the captain of her Mock Trial team. She aims to pursue a career in law and spent this past summer interning at a law firm downtown! Things she loves include dancing Bollywood, her Keurig, frequent naps, and the color mint green.

Mr. Kamykowski is working towards his doctorate in education, with a dissertation on adolescent leadership development. He believes that everyone can be a mentor because there is something to learn from every person you meet. His fondest Student Council memory was their first homecoming spirit week.
