We are pleased to announce our 2013 - 2014 High School Division Executive Committee Officers.
The IASC wants to send out a very special thank you to all parents, advisers, principals, and school personnel for making SLC and SLI a huge success. Thank you for sending us your students for an unforgettable summer "Leadership" experience.
123 Indiana students in grades 5-12 came together at Manchester University for a unique and memorable learning and leading opportunity. Be sure to go to our video gallery for the SLI recap video (if the video is taking a long time to load, please be patient. It works). Also check out the SLC pictures from this year's camp in our photo gallery; located in the Middle Level folder. The SLI pictures from this year's camp can now be found in the photo gallery under the High School Division folder.
Please be sure to visit our web site often for camp updates and form downloads. We are already looking forward to 2014!
Enjoy the rest of your summer and have a magnificent 2013-2014 school year!
