Established in 2008, Tomorrow’s Leaders provides selected student fellows with the experiences and information they need to fully develop their leadership potential. Tomorrow’s Leaders student fellows Kristin Bittikofer, Derek Minetti, Amber McConnell and Andrew Rapattoni attended the symposium.
“I feel extremely honored to have been able to attend this event,” said McConnell. “The opportunity to listen to some amazing people from our recent history was amazing. It was truly uplifting and inspiring.”
The next training event for the student fellows is a Leadership Boot Camp that will be held in Livermore on April 17 and 18.
