EHS certified as Lead2Feed school
Eisenhower High School is one of only 32 schools nationwide that have earned the Lead2Feed Certified School honor for 2017-2018.
As part of the Lead2Feed program, Eisenhower gives its students the opportunity to learn outside the classroom while working to meet community needs, according to a Sept.19 press release from Lead2Feed.org.
Thousands of middle and high school students from over 5,000 schools and clubs across all 50 states will participate this year in the program. The Lead2Feed program was originally inspired by leadership expert David Novak, co-founder and former CEO and chairman of Yum! Brands. The program was developed by the Foundation for Impact on Literacy and Learning and the Lift a Life Foundation.
Leadership skills are a vital aspect of students' education, according to a recent Lead2Feed survey, with 91 percent stating that middle and high school students should learn leadership skills as part of their curriculum. The free program helps fill a gap in the students' education by providing innovative leadership lessons. Since the program's inception in 2012, more than one million students have demonstrated their leadership skills by creating projects and volunteering time and resources to address community and global needs.
