Media Advisory – Lead SI

Reporters, photographers and news crews are welcome to cover a leadership-building event this week at Southern Illinois University Carbondale.

Lead SI, sponsored by the Office of the President at SIU, is aimed at identifying tomorrow’s leaders as they enter their junior or senior years in high school, training them and introducing them to leaders of today. The overall goal is to stem the flow of the best and brightest students away from Southern Illinois.

Opportunities for coverage include:

• 3 p.m. Thursday, June 12, at Trueblood Hall, lower level: motivational speaker Jean Driscoll.

• 9 a.m. Friday, June 13, at the Student Health Center Auditorium: biofeedback session/managing emotions, with Dr. Nancy Aguinaga.
