    Course Overview

    ASB Leadership students work together to serve the school, to build relationships on campus, and to create experiences for other students on campus so that more relationships can be created. We want the students on campus to know that they are supported and appreciated. To achieve this, we must take risks, step out of our comfort zones, and push ourselves. From the risks we take we can receive adventure and/or growth. Both growth and adventure is what leaders always need to progress in their personal betterment.

    Conduct Requirements:  You represent ASB and our school as a whole. With that, we expect that you’re a role model for other students, that you’re encouraging to them, and make an effort to make this campus better for those behind you.
