SLP Kicks Off 2014 School Year

Wed, December 03, 2014

The Student Leadership Program (SLP) launched its seventh year in Savannah and first year in Brunswick at the fall 2014 kickoff celebrations, held at the Jekyll Island Convention Center and the Savannah International Trade and Convention Center

“We welcomed 53 freshmen students to the Brunswick program and 150 freshmen in Savannah,” said Chris Nowicki, Community Investment specialist. “The energy at both events was incredible. All of the students involved are looking forward to a year filled with leadership programming and service activities. ”

The beginning of the SLP school year is a celebration of what’s possible and is one of the many annual highlights for everyone involved in SLP – Gulfstream employees, teachers, community advisors and, of course, the students.

Motivational speaker Brian Heat delivered this year’s keynote address at both kickoff celebrations. In his electrifying message, Heat told students of the limitless opportunities available to them as a result of being selected for SLP.

Heat encouraged all SLP participants to chase their dreams fearlessly despite inevitable obstacles. As a former school administrator and college success program developer, he knows about the power of an education and of having mentors who push students to achieve.

School system leaders from Glynn County Schools and the Savannah-Chatham County Public School System attended the events, to welcome all of the students and congratulate them on their participation in SLP.
