It was back to school for the nonprofit group Leadership Lakes Region recently the class of 2020 visited several educational institutions and related activities as part of the annual Educational Issues Day. The day began with a visit to the Lakes Region Scholarship Foundation (LRSF) where the group was greeted by Director Paulette Loughlin and Assistant Director Karen Switzer, Leadership Class of 2013, who explained the mission and processes of the scholarship-granting agency. The LRSF Board generously provide morning refreshments for the leadership group to start the day. Then it was off to Gilford Elementary School where the leadership class heard about innovative programs from Superintendent of Schools Kirk Beitler and members of the GES staff including Principal Danielle Bolduc. Fourth grade children spoke to the group about what they are doing in and out of their classrooms. A highlight was an explanation by the children of their maple syrup- making project and the community support that resulted in a Sugaring House being built on school property where the kids have tapped maple trees and become involved in this tasty New Hampshire springtime tradition. While at GES, the former Supt. of Schools for Laconia, Bob Champlin, gave an interactive presentation to the class on “Leadership” citing several favorite authors and their books. From Gilford, it was off to Lakes Region Community College (LRCC) where the students of the Culinary Arts Program hosted a delicious Middle Eastern buffet lunch for the group prior to their next visit to the Huot Career and Technical Center. At the Huot, Director Dave Warrender and Coordinator Paul Robdau split the group in two for in-depth tours of the facility following Warrender’s words of welcome and introduction to the Huot and its role in educating area students for worthwhile careers and success.
