Important Lone Star Leadership Academy Alumni Council Message

You registered for the Lone Star Leadership Academy Alumni Council by the September deadline. I have been sending e-mails about the assigned and required Alumni Council activities since October with no responses. At this time, you have not completed any of the three requirements to be a Council member.

Missing items:

The Service Project and Sponsor Form – (Guidelines) https://educationinaction.org/alumni-council-members/service-project-guidelines

(Sponsor Form) https://educationinaction.org/service-project-approval-and-sponsor-form

Module Lesson #1 and Module Lesson #2 - https://educationinaction.org/leadership-lessons

We set deadlines so that students can follow leadership skills and be responsible for those deadlines. In order to stay in good standing with the Alumni Council, you must complete the three missing items BY NO later than Sunday, January 2. If I do not receive responses for the missing items by then, I will be forced to drop you from the Council. If you are not interested in continuing with the Council and had rather withdraw now, please let me know by responding to the text I sent.

Information to Complete the Module Lessons

To best prepare for this Leadership Portfolio, we recommend the following:

· Create an Alumni Council notebook using a binder of your choice.

· The three lessons this year will be experiential – hands on - in nature. As a result, you’ll want to print off each lesson and then place them in your Leadership Portfolio binder.

· We have added a creative cover for your binder on the last page of this first module lesson. At the end of each lesson this year, you’ll be asked to fill in what you’ve learned about your SHINE on this cover.

· Consider using the binder as a place to also organize information related to your Alumni Council service project.

· Save this binder, and you can build upon it during future years with the Council and other lessons!
