Then student mentors and mentees shared this year's accomplishments and goals documented in their Leadership notebooks.  They also participated in Synergy games and a Leadership panel consisting of community members. The culminating activity was painting and illustrating Stephen Covey's 7 habits on 2' by 8' boards to enhance our outdoor environment.
