Pfeifer selected for NDLS

By Staff | Jun 17, 2016

Mariah Pfeifer has been selected to represent Rugby High School at the North Dakota Leadership Seminar June 16-19, 2016 at the University of Mary in Bismarck, ND.

Pfeifer, daughter of Edwin Pfeifer and Carissa Allen, was selected to represent her school at the North Dakota Leadership Seminar because of her leadership skills, commitment to community service and involvement in her school and community.

For more than 30 years, The North Dakota Leadership Seminar brings together some of the North Dakota’s most talented young people from across our state to join together for an extraordinary weekend focused on leadership development, service, and issue awareness through empowering discussions and informal debate. Students walk away each year with the tools they need to motivate their peers to make a difference in their communities and schools. Each student who attends the program is encouraged to go back into their community and provide 100 hours of service throughout the year.

Rusty Bender, Seminar Co-Chair, explains how NDLS can encourage students to become leaders. “My hope for students as they leave NDLS is to have a greater understanding for how they can impact the world around them, and that no matter how small, every effort counts. They are tomorrow’s leaders and we help give them the confidence they need to follow through on that responsibility.”
