Twelve high schools and six colleges from Kansas, Illinois, Missouri and Nebraska competed in Washburn University Leadership Institute’s LCE®, March 29-30 at Washburn University. At LCE® the students gained perspective on their personal leadership strengths, weaknesses and styles and they had to compete to fulfill the challenges and overcome the obstacles placed before them in a manner that demonstrates exemplary leadership knowledge and execution. The college division winner was Fort Hays State University, Hays, Kan.
LCE® was created to encourage leadership development by offering participants education, hands-on experience and recognition in a competitive environment. LCE® simulates the real-world process of leadership through a two-day event consisting of a half-day leadership conference, followed by a full-day live, interactive leadership simulation competition. LCE® was designed by students in the Washburn Leadership Institute. The LCE® simulation is a unique interactive leadership competition unlike any other leadership development event. Not only did LCE® showcase future leaders, it enhanced networking opportunities for all participants, including students, advisers and more than 40 student and 60 community volunteers.
The Washburn University Leadership Institute sponsors LCE®. For more information, contact Jeff Mott, director, Washburn Leadership Institute, at (785) 670-2001.
