On Wednesday, Nov. 8th the student council had to opportunity to attend a leadership conference designed just for students like them in leadership positions at their school. The conference was all day long and held at BYU. There were several great talks and the student left feeling inspired and ready to become even better leaders for Brookside. Devon Anderson learned that “No matter how many times you fail, there’s always a way to get back in.” Ammon Anderson liked the quote “It is better to be respected than it is to be popular.” He feels this will help him as he tries to look at the big picture. Brooklyn Pugmire went away thinking of all the ways she can be sure to include everyone in what she is doing. Warrrick Small challenged himself to try to smile and say Hi to as many kids as he can. Liesel Scott felt the quote “The problem isn’t the problem, it is how you deal with the problem” would be great to remember when going through difficult times. Finally Edie Knoebel learned that you should not be afraid to stand up for what is right and stop bullying. The whole student council is ready for action and to help Brookside become the best it can be!
