The University of Montevallo SGA held a leadership conference on campus for students of Montevallo and Vincent high schools Saturday, Aug. 17.
Students from SGA, FFA, FCCLA, football, basketball, volleyball, National Honor Society and Mu Alpha Theta participated in the conference.
“We participated in many workshops that helped in my leadership abilities,” senior SGA President Zachary Tutwiler said.  “I learned many tactics that I plan on using this upcoming year.”
The workshops ranged from public speaking to learning how to fundraise efficiently.  Each workshop was held by one of the University’s SGA members.
“I think the UM leadership conference was a great way for us to start the year to help students to have a vision about the impact they can make in our school and in the surrounding community,” SGA advisor Lee Pastor said.
Along with the leadership workshops, students also took part in a personality evaluation called the Myers Briggs type.
“The Myers Briggs evaluation really showed me my strong points along with what I need to work on this upcoming year,” senior SGA Vice President Chase Hamrick said.
University of Montevallo representatives of the SGA also thought the conference was a success.
“The leadership conference we had with the two high schools went surprisingly well,” UM SGA Vice President Johnathan Evans said.  “Most all of the students that showed up said they gained very positive ideas and traits for their respective leadership roles and we are looking forward to the opportunity to get to host the conference again in the future.”
Once the conference ended, students were given the opportunity to tour the campus with the UM SGA.  Students from Vincent took the opportunity and toured the entire campus.  Even Montevallo students saw parts of the campus they did not know existed.
Student leaders have the opportunity to participate again next summer to see how much they have progressed from this summer.
