Plymouth High School is excited to announce the establishment of the Student Leadership Group, a dynamic initiative aimed at cultivating leadership qualities among its student-athletes.

The Student Leadership Group will convene twice a month, from 7:00 am to 7:45 am, providing student-athletes with a dedicated platform to explore vital leadership topics. These topics include positive leadership, discipline, servant leadership, pride, empathy, gratitude, GRIT, integrity, and confidence. By delving into these subjects, students will gain a deeper understanding of leadership and acquire the skills and confidence needed to apply them in their athletic and academic pursuits.

One of the primary goals of this group is to empower students to persevere and lead through adversity. The high school experience is filled with challenges, and the Student Leadership Group aims to equip participants with the tools they need to thrive, both on and off the field.

To enrich the learning experience, the program will feature a lineup of distinguished speakers connected to Plymouth or collegiate athletics. Each speaker will address topics relevant to that month’s theme, providing real-world insights and inspiration to the students.

Furthermore, the Student Leadership Group will engage students in meaningful discussions about important leadership scenarios. Through these conversations, participants will learn how to have a more significant and positive impact as student leaders within their school and community.

The selection process for this exceptional group of student leaders was highly competitive. Students were recommended by their respective team’s coaches, with nominations limited to one upperclassman and one underclassman from each sport. Additionally, students were nominated by the administration based on their demonstrated leadership potential. In total, 47 outstanding students have been chosen to join the inaugural Student Leadership Group.

“We believe that leadership is a vital skill for success in both sports and life,” said Josh Troyer, Athletic Director at Plymouth High School. “Our Student Leadership Group is designed to provide our student-athletes with the tools and knowledge they need to become exceptional leaders, not only within their teams but also within the broader community. We are excited to see the positive impact this initiative will have on our students and the school as a whole.”
