Cambria Heights School District attends SuperConference 24

The Cambria County Secondary Principals’ Association has endorsed the continuation of the annual conference for student leaders, known as “SuperConference,” again this year.

Mount Aloysius College in Cresson was the host for SuperConference 24 on May 4.

The seminar provided student leaders from the middle school and high school an opportunity to enhance leadership traits, develop leadership skills and foster pride and spirit in their school.

The students were engaged in a series of workshops from predominant figures in the community.

The following students were chosen to attend the workshop, by their teachers, from the Cambria Heights School District: Morgan Link, Morgan Schreyer, Hanna Kirsch, Haylee Henry, Abbey Kinney, Nicholas Brawley, Gian Pagano, Andrew Christoff, Henry Warner and Liam Wholaver.

They all demonstrate a desire for personal improvement and growth as well as demonstrating outstanding leadership qualities.
