Wendland attends ND Leadership seminar

Devon Wendland represented Wolford Public School at the North Dakota Leadership Seminar May 30th-June 1st, 2013 at the University of Mary in Bismarck. Wendland was selected because of his demonstrated service and leadership abilities in school as well as continued involvement in his community.

The North Dakota Leadership Seminar brought together over 100 of the most talented and leadership-driven youth from across our state to join together for an extraordinary weekend focused on leadership development and community service. Students who attend leave the seminar as leaders eager to go back to their schools and communities and truly make a difference.

"The North Dakota Leadership Seminar strives to provide a comprehensive leadership experience with area business, education and government leaders which will set students up to succeed in all areas of their lives," said seminar chair Sara Litton.

The North Dakota Leadership Seminar is completely volunteer lead, and encourages each student leader to go back into their community and provide 100 hours of service throughout the year.

The North Dakota Leadership Seminar, established in 1981, is a non-profit organization dedicated to inspiring leadership skills and a spirit of volunteerism in the state's young people. Every high school in the state is eligible to select a student to attend the seminar free of charge. Organized by volunteers, the seminar is financially supported by donations from businesses, service organizations, individuals, and foundations from across the state.
