2022-2023 Leadership Team Results

Congratulations to those selected to be a part of the 2022-2023 Leadership Team! We are very excited to have such a great group of students share their talents and continue to promote excellence within our program.

We appreciate everyone taking the time to audition/interview. Being a leader doesn't require a title, and we sincerely hope that even if you were not selected, you will continue to serve our program by demonstrating integrity, hard-work, passion, and commitment in all aspects of your life.
