Below are some more resources for you or anyone you know who may be struggling right now.

Preview of the State Convention

On March 12-13, Piedmont High School will host the North Carolina Association of Student Councils' State Convention. The premiere event of the year for NCASC, the convention's powerfully engaging speakers, and informative skillshops ensure there is something for everybody. All of this is just for a $10.00 registration fee.

Our theme is Leadership 2.0. This theme embodies how leaders adapt to modern challenges. The traits of empathy, collaboration, and versatility are the skills that leaders must learn and apply to adapt with their environment.

New officer schools will be elected, over the course of the event, with those elections being facilitated by Jack Britt High School. Be sure to join us on March 12-13 for an electric leadership experience!

More information will be posted in the coming weeks, along with the registration link!
