army leadership symposium

Shelley Ebert and Misty Bible were recently nominated and selected to attend the Leaders Building Leaders Army Leadership Symposium in Fort Leavenworth, Kansas. Shelley Ebert is the student services coordinator and Misty Bible is the counselor at Kiamichi Technology Centers-Idabel Campus.   Fort Leavenworth is renowned for its expertise in developing world-class military leaders and is considered one of the U.S. Army’s premier training institutions.  During the symposium, attendees were able to explore U.S. Army best practices in leader and professional development and how educators can apply them in support of preparing today’s students to be college, career and citizenship ready.  Attendees also learned about the Army’s many education and career initiatives and available resources. 

A cohort of 33 principals and counselors were selected from across the United States to attend the event.  The event was a collaboration between the U.S. Army, the National Association of Secondary School Principals, and the American School Counselor Association.  All travel arrangements and accommodation costs were funded by the U.S. Army. 

Ebert and Bible are grateful to have this unique experience, and believe that the knowledge that they acquired will benefit their students greatly.
