In spite of pouring rains causing schools to dismiss early on September 30, the 39th annual Baltimore County Student Councils Leadership Workshop was delayed a day but turned out better than ever!

From October 1-2, more than 150 student leaders and advisors representing 23 middle and high schools gathered at Camp Ramblewood in Darlington, Md. to experience student-led seminars, motivational activities, leadership lessons, and fun-with-a-purpose.

According to BCSC Student Councils Advisor Barbara Fuller, Baltimore County Public Schools is the only school district in Maryland that holds such an extensive leadership training workshop for students.

“The BCSC Leadership Workshop affords students the opportunity to step outside their comfort zones, to learn how to become more effective leaders, and to discover what other student leaders around the county are doing to improve their schools and communities,” says Fuller.  “It is a unique experience for students because all the workshops, seminars, and activities are taught and facilitated by experienced student leaders who have been trained to lead the sessions. The energy and excitement felt by the student delegates while at Camp Ramblewood is contagious and empowering.”

As is his tradition, Superintendent Dr. Joe A. Hairston visited the leadership camp on Saturday to speak with students and observe workshops.
