ATTLEBORO — Two Attleboro High School sophomores were selected to attend leadership conferences at local colleges.
William Runey attended the MassSTAR Citizenship Conference at Lassell College from May 31 to June 2 while Daniel Flores went to the Hugh O’Brian Youth Leadership Seminar at Bentley University.
According to the organizations, Runey’s conference involved “three days of intensive programming to challenge the student delegates, broaden their perspectives, and bring out their inner leaders. Through a series of panel speakers, group learning activities, and intensive small group discussions, students learn they can be proactive leaders in their own communities. These students then take these skills and bring them back to their home school environments.”
The seminar attended by Flores was designed for the students to “take part in hands-on activities, hear powerful presentations from innovative and passionate speakers, and explore their own personal leadership skills while learning how to lead others and make a positive impact in their community.”
Runey is the son of Mim and Bill Runey, principal of Attleboro High, while Flores is the son of Jesseca and Danilo Flores.
