Eisenhower Rotary Academy students build leadership skills

ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) – Several eighth grade students from Eisenhower Middle School’s Rotary Academy took advantage of the warmer weather today to build their leadership skills at the YMCA’s Camp Winnebago.

Students participated in collaborative team-building exercises focused on problem solving, decision making, and communication and building self-esteem. The program included a high ropes course nearly 30 feet above the ground. Organizers say building upon these skills will further encourage the students to take on leadership roles as they enter high school and even adulthood.
