Ann Philip, Class of 2020

As a SLJC alum, I can confidently say that my time in Student Leadership was by far one of best high school experiences I could've ever asked for. Not only did I meet so many young leaders in my area, but through non profit projects, job shadowing opportunities, local business and government workshops and more- I learned the importance of networking in today's world, and continue to practice the same ideals and build on my past connections along the way- even as a first year college student.

William Custis
Class of 2015

My name is William Custis and I'm a freshman at Wake Forest University double majoring in mathematical business and computer science. My university's motto is "for humanity". My time participating in Student Leadership Johns Creek definitely prepared me for the projects and initiatives that I am currently working on. It also ignited my passion to lead and serve in college and to get involved beyond the classroom. I have so much appreciation for every person involved with this program and for all of the professionals that we were exposed to throughout the two years.

Caroline Custis

I have learned so many meaningful things. In order to be a good leader, one must have the ability to listen to others and be a team player. We are currently working as a group in a community service project benefiting the students of Findley Oaks Elementary. The team building exercises that we've been given, field trips, and speakers have allowed me to be a more confident member as we work to enhance the Johns Creek community. I'm very proud to be a part of this organization.

SLJC was an overall amazing opportunity that really helped prepare me for leadership positions in high school.

Kaushi Chandraratna
Class of 2016

SLJC taught me that there's a leader within everyone, no matter your personality type; being just yourself allows you to be a leader, there isn't a certain archetype that you have to adhere to. Gaining this knowledge is what helped me realize that I can be a quiet leader or a loud one, so long as I help to create change for the better while communicating earnestly and being respectful, and for that I am grateful. Hope all is going well with the current classes of SLJC!

Preeti Iyer
Class of 2015

I was part of the student leadership program throughout my sophomore and junior year of high school. I had always been involved in leadership with the school and community, but SLJC grew me into a more informed, effective and responsible leader by connecting me with local leaders, holding developmental workshops with other youth leaders, and giving me an outlet to develop and implement community-based initiatives with other students. Overall the program gave me both the skills and confidence I needed to allow me to fulfill more demanding and influential leadership positions during my senior year in high school and beyond.
