More than 70 students representing high schools rooted in the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur hallmarks gathered at Emmanuel College in Boston for a Leadership conference earlier this summer. Seven students from CJ participated in the conference.
“I went to the conference because I talked about it with some of the Sisters and it sound really fun,” shared Abby Feucht ‘20. “I also just wanted to learn more about how to make a bigger impact on my society.”
As part of the conference, Eagles collaborated with students from other schools to explore ideas that incorporate the values of the Sisters.
“The most impactful activity we did in my opinion was this listen activity with a partner that really helped us to work on our listening skills and how to apply them to everyday things,“ said Feucht.
During some of the activities, the students met with Sisters who were serving from countries around the world.
“I would really encourage more people to come to the conference,” Feucht emphasized. “It was such a great time and we got to meet so many different people from around the country and world — it was an amazing experience! We all really learned so much!”
