Leadership Breakfast at the Capital

Barnett Student Lighthouse Team was invited to bring four student lighthouse team members to the Utah State Capital on February 16th, 2017 to have breakfast with state representatives and state senators. Students had the opportunity to discuss leadership and why it is important that it is taught in schools with the leaders in our government. After breakfast, students toured the Capital Building and even got the chance to sit in Govenor Herbert's office. They also were recognized on the floor of the senate by name by Senator Henderson, senator for the Payson area. It was a wonderful experience for these students to practice their leadership skills!
