Roosevelt Leos learn leadership at state conference

The Roosevelt High School Leo Club presented its prize-winning PowerPoint presentation to more than 100 Leos at the MD2 Texas Leo Leadership Conference.

The event was held in San Antonio November 8-9. Clubs from across South Texas attended workshops on officer training, leadership and teamwork, project planning and management, and charities.

The Leos attending the conference also marched in San Antonio's Salute to Veterans Day Parade.

The Roosevelt Leos include club Co-Presidents Leticia Compean and Christian Gonzalez, members Regina Compean, Ashley Mata, Jonathan Peacher, and Melissa Trevino.

The Roosevelt High School Leo Club is sponsored by the City of Windcrest Lions Club. The Leo Clubs were created to encourage young people to get involved in their communities and develop leadership qualities.

The Windcrest Lions Club chartered the Theodore Roosevelt High School Leo Club in 2011 with 28 charter Leo members. In two years, the Club has grown to over nearly 60 members.

Led by its officers and faculty sponsor, Lisa Alanis, the Leos last year conducted more than 20 different service projects and contributed thousands of volunteer service hours throughout Roosevelt and its surrounding communities, resulting in their being awarded the prestigious Lions International LEO CLUB EXCELLENCE AWARD. This is the highest award granted to Leo Clubs worldwide.
