Third graders build connections with local leaders
On Wednesday, September 20, third graders at Roland Park K-8 Magnet School engaged a panel of Tampa based community leaders as part of their lesson on leadership. The students are currently learning how communities are enriched by their members and by their personal beliefs and values.
A total of 80 third graders approached a podium centered in the school's multi-purpose room and asked insightful questions of leaders in the academic, military, community, and political arenas. The goal was for students to ultimately understand what it takes to be a leader in action.

Mr. Weaver, Principal, Roland Park K-8 Magnet School

City Councilman Luis Viera
