This week’s episode is a little different than most. But in this season of giving, we think we’re giving you a tremendous gift with this episode.
Going into this school year we decided that we wanted our students in the C-10 Mentoring & Leadership program to dive deeper into leadership. To be more intentional about how they think about leadership.
With that in mind, and feeling that the guests we have on this podcast offer great leadership lessons, throughout this school year we’re having the students listen to an episode of the C-10 Podcast, and then discuss its leadership lessons with the group. And then, after they talk or are interviewed by their mentor, we open it up to questions from the other students and mentors.
So, this week, three students from our C-10 program are going to be the stars — the experts, as we told them — for this episode.
Keep this in mind: we typically have about 40-45 people at each session, and the three students you’ll hear from in this episode all volunteered to be in this group. They volunteered to get up in front of the group and speak. Take charge of this. That alone speaks to their leadership now and in the future. This group includes two seniors and one new student, a sophomore.
We’ll introduce each student and mentor along the way, but here’s who you’ll hear:
— Senior Jameson and his mentor Larry Hettinger after a clip from Royals Hall of Famer Mike Sweeney.
— Sophomore John and his mentor Steve Perez after a clip from former KCMO mayor Sly James.
— Finally, senior Naya and her mentor Eli Medina. Naya, who graduated from high school this month, selected a clip from actor, comedian and former Marine Rob Riggle’s episode.
It’s a little different week, but we hope you enjoy hearing from some of our students.
