Congratulations to Kempton Davis '18, Abby Herrod '18, Jordan Houston '18 and Arynne Greene '18 who were all members of eXcel Leadership Academy's Class of 2017!
Thirty-four young men and women poured out of the Slover Library elevators laughing, whispering and hiding squirt guns and leis behind their back. They were going to their graduation.
It was quite a different scene from orientation three days before. Students from private and public schools and from all different cities sat quietly as the Hampton Roads Chamber welcomed them as eXcel Leadership Academy’s Class of 2017. The program is modeled after the nine-month LEAD program for adult professionals in Hampton Roads. It uses hands-on experiences and interactive learning tools to teach older high school students about the community and leadership over four days.
