Evangel Hosts Leadership Academy

December 608, 2011 | Chase Replogle

On Wednesday, Nov. 9, Evangel had the opportunity to host 32 area high school juniors who are members of this year’s class of the Leadership Academy. LA is sponsored by the Springfield Area Chamber of Commerce and Leadership Springfield. Over the lunch hour, the students visited EU’s campus and received an insightful presentation from Dr. Grant Jones, professor of psychology, and an interactive presentation by Jason Salazar, assistant professor of music.

The Leadership Academy is made up of students selected from the five Springfield Public High Schools, plus New Covenant Academy, Catholic H.S. and Greenwood H.S. The visit was part of the group’s Education Day emphasis; they also enjoyed presentations at the other three major colleges in town.

Paul K. Logsdon, Evangel’s director of public relations, has long been a volunteer advisor for the program. A dozen members of the EU faculty and staff worked to make the experience a great one for the Leadership Academy.
