Jamestown, ND- Sidra Sadowsky and Elizabeth Urwiller have been selected to represent Hettinger High School at the North Dakota Leadership Seminar May 31st – June 2nd at the University of Jamestown in Jamestown, ND.
Sadowsky, daughter of Melissa and Howard Sadowsky, and Urwiller, daughter of Shane Urwiller were selected to represent their school at the North Dakota Leadership Seminar because of their leadership skills, commitment to community service and involvement in their school and community.
For more than 30 years, The North Dakota Leadership Seminar has brought together some of the North Dakota’s most talented young people from across our state to join together for an extraordinary weekend focused on leadership development, service, and issue awareness through empowering discussions and informal debate. Students walk away each year with the tools they need to motivate their peers to make a difference in their communities and schools. Each student who attends the program is encouraged to go back into their community and provide 100 hours of service throughout the year.
Bryce Scharmer, Seminar Chair, explains how NDLS can encourage students to become leaders. “Our hope is that student leaders who attend NDLS leave with the tools they need to go back into their community and impact the world around them. These young men and women are North Dakota’s up and coming leaders, and we can’t wait to meet them.”
Dana Altendorf, Seminar Co-Chair shares, “For many of the students, this experience continues far beyond the weekend. Each student who attends the program is encouraged to go back into their community and provide 100 hours of service throughout the year. We are proud to say that last year alone NDLS alumni volunteered over 2,000 hours in their communities.”
